Wednesday, September 25 screening Introduced by Bill Fugler.
Bill Fugler, former owner of Wolseley’s Neighborhood Book Store and Café walks for 2-3 hours, three or four times a week. His goal is to walk every street in Winnipeg and says he is more than halfway to his goal having walked through the West End, West Kildonan, the North End and River Heights.
There are 8,000 miles of sidewalks, paths and roads in New York City, and for the past six years Matt Green has been walking them all–every street, every block, every pedestrian overpass, park lane and hiking trail. A journey that stretches from the heart of Harlem to the marshes of Staten Island, Matt’s walk is a pursuit of anything that catches his eye, be it a national landmark or a humble manhole cover. Over time Matt has amassed an encyclopedia of surprising New York trivia and underground history, informed by his own research and conversations with the amused but supportive New Yorkers he encounters along the way. The World Before Your Feet is an authentic tribute to New York and the freedom to be found in the simple act of putting on one’s shoes and taking a walk outside.
