Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in Nora Ephron’s wonderfully romantic comedy about two people drawn together by destiny. Hanks stars as Sam Baldwin, a widowed father who, thanks to the wiles of his worried son, becomes a reluctant guest on a radio call-in show. He’s an instant hit with thousands of female listeners who deluge his Seattle home with letters of comfort. Meanwhile, inspired in equal parts by Sam’s story and by classic Hollywood romance, writer Annie Reed (Ryan) becomes convinced that it’s her destiny to meet Sam. There are just two problems: Annie’s engaged to someone else and Sam doesn’t know yet that they’re made for each other. Co-starring Rosie O’Donnell, Rita Wilson and Rob Riener.

Meet outside the east exit of the E, M train station at Court Square (23 St/44 Dr.) in Long Island City. (#7 and G trains connect here as well.) Walk through a nexus of contemporary artists’ activity in converted industrial buildings. Follow newly gentrified Jackson Ave. and cross the Pulaski Bridge connecting Long Island City to Brooklyn. See remnants of the intense and largely unregulated industrial development that thrived along Newtown Creek during the late nineteenth century before the consolidation of Greater NYC and infrastructure improvements rendered it obsolete. View the striking NYC DEP Wastewater Improvement Plant (“Digester Eggs”) and visit its adjacent Nature Trail in Greenpoint. Meander through partially gentrified working class blocks and end in a concentration of Polish food (among other cuisines.) Fee $20 payable at start of tour. Maximum of 30 participants.

The true story of fast-draws and wild rides, battles with posses, train and bank robberies, a torrid love affair and a new lease on outlaw life in far away Bolivia. It is also a character study of a remarkable friendship between Butch – possibly the most likeable outlaw in frontier history – and his closest associate, the fabled, ever-dangerous Sundance Kid.
