Hygge means "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being." "Hyggehiking" is my own special blend, where we engage in that conviviality while trekking through green spaces throughout our city. I host Hygge gatherings so we can come together to make new friends, discuss fun projects we're eager to work on, dive into deep, thoughtful discussions, and meet people who can help make NYC feel like a smaller, closer-knit community. We bring our friends, family, coworkers, anyone we think would enjoy spending the day alongside a variety of curious souls. On Saturday April 13th, in the spirit of migratory bird season, we'll be traversing the parks, piers, marshes, and beaches connecting the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge with the Coney Island Beach and Boardwalk! Here's my Google Maps list of the specific places we'll endeavor to traverse: We may not make it to every location on the list, but I encourage you to dig deeper into any of them whenever you please. FYI this is a 12-hour stroll, and you are free to join us at *any* point in the day 🙌 All RSVP'd "yes" and "maybe" attendees will receive a link at 10am to my realtime location for the entire day, along with my phone number, so you can see exactly where we are on google maps and call me directly if you need help 🤗 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🗺️ ITINERARY 🗺️ 10am-1pm — Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge ✨ Kick off the morning with bird watching, marsh meandering, and planespotting (we'll be right next to JFK). 1pm-3pm — DiVino Pizzeria, Spring Creek Park, Shirley Chisholm State Park ✨ Lunch at a local pizzeria followed by flaneuring amongst local fauna. 3pm-6pm — Canarsie Park, Paerdegat Beach, Aviator Sports & Events Center, Historic Air Restoration Project, Floyd Bennett Field ✨ Tour through any accessible aeronautical exhibitions and activities. Floyd Bennett Field was recently used as an emergency tent shelter for NYC's migrants, so I'm not sure what it will look like now. I guess we'll find out... 6pm-8pm — Brighton Beach, White Castle, Coney Island Beach & Boardwalk ✨ Fun fact: White Castle serves Impossible patties. We'll enjoy sunset by the water, walk along the boards, explore large scale art installs, and play any games we encounter along the way. 8pm-10pm — All-You-Can-Eat Sushi? ✨ I'm told there are a few all-you-can-eat sushi places nearby. Pending group willingness/hunger, we may pick one and venture there! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🎒WHAT TO BRING🎒 • comfy shoes • seeds, nuts, bird calls • jacket • light blanket • friends 🥰 • cash • sun protection (hat, sunscreen, sunglasses) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 👋🏼ABOUT YOUR HOST👋🏼 I'm Steve Dean, an NYC-based community builder, dating industry consultant, relationship coach, entrepreneur, and diehard superconnector.
