Dead Horse Bay on May Day



Workers of the city, rise up from your desks and walk out into the dandelion wilds this May Day (otherwise known as midweek Wednesday)! Dead Horse Bay is alive with spring things, including carpets of dandelions and violets.


...and sheep sorrel.


We will explore the grassy paths before finding ourselves on the beach (our visit is timed for low tide), where the famous bottles and bits of vintage detritus clink as the baby waves wash over them.


This weird urban habitat feels very jungle-wild and shows us everything from invasive and delicious edible weeds (like garlic mustard, above) to shoreline natives like bayberry whose flavors sing of the Northeast.


We will enjoy them all in our wild-inspired picnic (the one above is from our foray last September).

Dead Horse Bay is accessible by subway and bus, and there is parking across the road at Floyd Bennet Field. You can also ride with me from Windsor Terrace, I have space for two more.

The walk starts at 12pm and ends at 3pm. But add travel time.

Details will be emailed to you upon sign up. Sign up fast!
