Tonight at 7:30 p.m., four Manhattan BP candidates will chat with the Inwood Hill Runners on the topic of parks and safety, and one of them will be in sneakers. That’s Bill Perkins, former marathoner, who plans to join the group at 6:30 p.m. for a four-mile run around Inwood Hill Park before the discussion starts. How many times shall they pun about running for office? Time will tell.
In other park-ish news, Parks1 plans to follow up its Mayoral Forum on Parks with a 5-Boro Parkstorming Tour. Parks1 people will be cropping up like flora at festivals, beaches, parades, and…parks(!) between now and the primary.
“Join us in the field,” their release beckons.
The Politicker has now hit (read: surpassed) today’s quota of outdoorsy puns.
