“Walkers are ‘practitioners of the city,’ for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.” ― Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

If there is one thing we would highly recommend to anyone able and willing to try, it would be this: Take a walk every single day. Head out and just go even without a definite destination in mind. We guarantee that you will at least learn something from the experience. And we hope that your own walking adventures begin and continue here at 36-Grays Lane — a website dedicated to walking in the city and beyond. We take you to places, streets, and trails where you can enjoy leisurely strolls, brisk walks, long distance walks, and everything in between. Here you will find articles about walking destinations, self-guided walking tour ideas, walking kits and gear, and resources among others.
