You’re going to the The Stephen & Betsy Corman AMC Harriman Outdoor Center
OK, Imma keep it real which’yall. The Appalachian Mountain Club (aka AMC) is as old school as it gets. It was founded in 1876. The NY Chapter goes back to 1912, which explains the recognition it enjoys and its packed calendar of events. But despite this - and even having encountered many of their groups on hikes - I’ve personally never signed up for any of their activities. That’s because their marketing had not successfully engaged young, inner city people of color like me (or my parents) when I was growing up. Its leadership still consists of elitist outdoorsmen and naturalists who for generations have been imposing policies and bylaws that are not always compatible with the way I enjoy the outdoors. Well, it’s pretty cool to see that they’ve been trying to change from a clique-y and exclusive “club” to an inclusive organization with events like these. So, we’re supporting (for now) to see where this goes in the name of good vibes and all things outdoors in and around NYC.
