Matt Green is walking every block in every borough in New York City—why? Because he already walked across the country and his feet weren’t tired yet. On this episode of In Real Life, we join him for a few blocks to hear the reasons—and non-reasons—for this epic stroll.

A little on the nose, and yet..

I hope Mr. Green takes a camera for Google.

There's a heck of a lot to see in NYC if you know what it is you're looking at....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm queems:

i've walked thousands of miles in new york city but i've never tried to walk every block. there is a cuny professor named william b helmreich who did this and wrote a book on it-it's called "the new york nobody knows-walking 6000 miles in the city

  7:04pm phillippe bastille:

hi everyone. just in time for the tears!
  7:04pm Listener Robert:

Queems, in chess problem terms you seem to have "cooked" this IRL episode.
  7:05pm Doobois:

Poetic, Emily!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm melinda:

@Richard that's a cool site. I used to think it would be fun to do one of his tours on a visit to NYC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm queems:

@robert lololol oops. this topic is extremely relevant to my interests. my mom bought the book for me because i do this kind of thing in my spare time

You guys are talking like your Logan's Run palm crystals are blinking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I used to drive to Manhattan on a summer Sunday morning and spend the day walking random streets for the day. Haven't done that for years now.
  7:09pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

I love this foreplay
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm ultradamno:

Why would anyone abandon an idea as great as lead shoes for any kind of weather?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I guess the sun isn't shining for Manhattanhenge this evening. :-( Maybe tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm queems:

i walked from downtown brooklyn to queens yesterday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm ultradamno:

Speaking of heavy weather, and I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I can't get over it. On Monday I heard a tornado warning EAS message that stipulated that we could expect hazards such as...tornado.

That was all.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Richard S:

I'm wondering if any new streets have been built since he started......

Avatar 7:17pm kimzilla:

@Queems, I am always fascinated by your travels on Instagram, you seem to be everywhere. I recognize a lot of it too!
  7:17pm Emily:

@Ken from HP oh! I’ve always wanted to see that but I always miss it—was Manhattanhenge supposed to be today??
  7:18pm Rusty Tiki:

Welcome go to NYC. The Midwest moves slower. Walk faster or stay to the right. We got somewhere to go and something to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm queems:

@kimzilla thanks!! walking around and taking photos brings me so much joy. doing it full time like this guy does would be a dream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm ultradamno:

I hope they were one-sided conversations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Emily - There's another chance tomorrow and then again in July. www.centralnewsnow.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Richard S:

Any city with a roughly East - West street grid will have a "-Henge" at some point during the year.
  7:23pm Emily:

@ultradamno ...or were they...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm ultradamno:

There is precedent: static.rogerebert.com...

  7:34pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Memorial Day was a washout but the rest of the week looks better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm queems:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

So ... what are the IRL plans for the summer? Periodic podcasts? Road trips? Going to interview some roller coaster fanatics?
  7:37pm Kate:

I am really going to miss you guys this summer. I know there will be a podcast, but dudes, its not the same.
  7:38pm Emily:

Good question, Ken from HP! We’ll be banking content and posting to the podcast—DEFINITELY keep an eye, er EAR, on the podcast. Roller coaster fanatics aren’t a bad idea...

Avatar 7:46pm kimzilla:

@Kate and @Aaron, how will you snark on each other without us here??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I saw the new fire escape the other day. Looks like King Kong could climb up and down and not bend anything.
Avatar 7:47pm kimzilla:

@Ken, OMG, you are so right it looks just like Donkey Kong!!!
  7:48pm Kate:

@Aaron what is she talking about? Your kindness has always been a gift to me.
Avatar 7:48pm dale:

herro dere. will miss your show but look forward to you're coming back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm melinda:

When I was in college I didn't have a car, and walking everywhere made the town seem bigger because it took longer to get from one place to another.
Avatar 7:49pm JakeGould:

The U.S. is not a very walkable country. Even NYC is not really great to walk in when all there its are glass towers with crappy ground floor retail.

My biggest NYC nostalgia is for a walkable city where it was really filled with cool things to do if you just explored a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Richard S:

One can always go back and listen to the shows you missed.....
  7:50pm Kate:

@kimzilla ohhhh I don't have itunes. just listening on "podcast app"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Matt Warwick should host the Garbecue on that fire escape.
  7:51pm Kate:

my life goal has always been to be a beach bum
Avatar 7:52pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Wasn'’t the old fire escape kind of “Donkey Kong” like?
Avatar 7:52pm kimzilla:

@ken, I loved that there was the first annual WFMU motorcycle ride last Monday. I want this to happen annually!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Richard S:

Have a great summer everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm ultradamno:

The living really do have a disproportionate amount of the options.
  7:52pm fullmetalmonkey:

Don't go
  7:53pm Kate:

@ultradamno bahhahahaha
  7:53pm phillippe bastille:

darn Ken...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm melinda:

We love you too. Will listen to and comment on the podcasts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

Radio Vert with Kim and Emily, let's do this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Richard S:

It looks like we can leave comments AFTER a show has finished and been archived.... So we can continue to leave comments and notes and messages here for everyone!

AND - let's tune in for Radiovert, OK?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm listener 126464:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm melinda:

@Richard and show hosts get notified when you comment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The old fire escape looked like it came from a video arcade, yes.
That was a long day in the saddle. You ladies could also visit some county fairs this summer. ♥♥
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm ultradamno:

Bat caves was the first one that popped in my mind..and voodoo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm queems:

thanks ladies!!!!
Avatar 7:58pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

I recommend reading Paul Auster's NY Trilogy, where a detective follows a homeless man who spells out letters on his walks around the city.
  7:58pm fullmetalmonkey:

Emily and Kim. Gonna miss you guys. You guys are the best. I will check out podcasts. Have a really great summer. :)
Avatar 7:58pm dale:

this girl is on fye-errrrrrrr.
  7:58pm Kate:

and the S & M dungeon teacher
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm melinda:

Someone once asked on Dave Mandl's comment board if people who comment on archives get immediately put in the wackadoo file, and he said no, DJs are notified and they appreciate it. I still feel a bit weird doing it on non-podcast shows.
  7:59pm phillippe bastille:

have a great summer! see you in september!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm ultradamno:

Can we talk Adrienne to keep The Blind Tourist going for summer in podform too? It's my other big one dropping off the sched.
  7:59pm Emily:

See y’all! I will miss you, but we’ll be back!
  8:00pm Listener Robert:

I've commented a few times on archived shows.
  7:51pm Listener Robert:

But then, I do belong in the wackadoo file.
