National Walk to Work Day


Today is “National Walk to Work Day”, and if there is something New Yorkers know how to do, it’s walk!

Lots of us here, at Galison/Mudpuppy, walk a significant amount of our daily commute and some walk the whole way from home to work.

Here are a couple of Galison/Mudpuppy employees walking to work this morning; we hope you enjoy the sights as much as we do.

1st up is Cynthia, our Mudpuppy creative director.

Cynthia walks to work every day!


Her starting point was the East Side; 54th Street and 9th Avenue.

From there Cynthia cut across town to Broadway and down through Times Square!


And then she took one more quick cut across town to get to the Galison/Mudpuppy offices on 44th street.


(disclaimer: these are not our offices, just beautiful Mid-Town sights)


Next to walk to work is Heather, from our Galison design team. Heather walked from her apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Heather's walk starts with a quick breakfast pick-up, then into Central Park where she can enjoy her breakfast at the Conservatory Water.


After eating breakfast, it is a beautiful walk down through central park! (I'm jealous of these beautiful views!)


Once through Central Park it is just a short jaunt down 6th Avenue to our Mid-Town offices!


Third is Liz in customer service. Liz commutes from New Jersey, so it's a little harder for her to walk the whole way to work. Liz arrived from New Jersey to Port Authority on the west side of Manhattan. She then walked the short distance from Port Authority, on 8th Avenue and 40st Street, to Galison/Mudpuppy.

Liz also got to see the sights of Times Square; as well as the New York Times building and Bryant Park!


And last is myself, Shannon; I commuted from Brooklyn to the Galison offices in Manhattan.

I started with a short walk through my neighborhood to the East River Ferry.


From my Brooklyn neighborhood, to Manhattan is just a short 10 minute ferry ride, but alas, I didn't get to ride the ferry. Ferries were running on a holiday schedule, so they didn't start till 9:30am; too late for me to get to work.

Once into Manhattan, via the subway, I passed by Bryant Park and arrived at our offices.


All of our walks originate from different places, but end up at our beautiful offices; with vibrant sights along the way. Happy "National Walk to Work Day"!
