A Walk to Remember: The Secret Garden

For Reading Week, Bwog is sharing a walk a day leaving from Columbia’s campus. Today’s Walk to Remember comes from Internal Editor Britt Fossum, who has been known to stress-walk approximately 500 miles when faced with looming finals.

Your Destination: West Side Community Garden

Your Destination: West Side Community Garden

When you get kind of stir crazy after a long day in Butler, head off campus to 114th street and cross to Columbus. Then just walk south until you hit 89th street. Turn right and walk about 200 feet. See the West Side Community Garden in all the glory of its spring tulip festival. Fall to your knees. Take a few pics for Instagram. Then take a seat on a bench and zone out or do some reading (hopefully for fun since this is supposedly a break from work, but this is a good place to catch up on CC/Lit Hum if you really have to). Stay until it gets too dark to read or you’re bored of peace and quiet. Walk back up to campus along the same route.

  • Total Time: ~20 minutes both ways according to Google maps and Bwog experience. At least an hour should be spent enjoying the flowers.
  • Suggested Soundtrack: Tame Impala and Patsy Cline
  • Alternate Routes: This walk is mostly about the destination tbh. For a more scenic route, head to Riverside park (will about 10-15 minutes walking time). There is also a 1 stop at 86th and Broadway and a B/C stop at 86th and Central Park West.
