READ

"Walking New York: A Step-By-Step Guide"

$14.95, National Geographic, 192 pages

When we think of walking in New York, it always conjures images of Dustin Hoffman's Ratso Rizzo banging on a car and yelling, "Hey, I'm walking here!" Yeah, it can be dangerous hoofing it in the city. But that's your problem. This National Geographic guide, rather, is a neighborhood guide of what sites and splendors await, both well-known and obscure. Say you're in the East Village and suddenly get the urge for Ukrainian food. The guide shows you a spot near St. Mark's Place.

WATCH

Documentary: "High Sierra: A Journey on the John Muir Trail"

$19.95, www.highsierradoc.com

A group of mellow and granola-crunchy (at least based on the preview) North Carolina high school students come to California and learn about the beauty and ruggedness of the 220-mile John Muir Trail. Check out the coming-attractions preview: www.youtube.com/ watch?v=Xz1YfbTwA20.

Vapur Element collapsible water bottle

$11.95, http://vapur.us/shop/7l-element-fire

Hikers hate lugging around a water bottle when their hands could be free for texting (just kidding). But Vapur has introduced a roll-up bottle you can stash in your pocket after you've drained it. They swear it's non-leaking. And, yes, it's also BPA-free.

GEAR

iPhone Case/Bottle Opener

$39.95, www.openacase.com

If Homer Simpson had an iPhone – and, who knows, maybe he does – he would buy this two-in-one case and bottle opener. It comes in black or white, and the stainless steel opener slides out to pop open another brewski.

THE TWEET

(Comedian Andy Borowitz) @BorowitzReport: "The only part of yoga that appeals to me is walking down the street with your mat and making others feel inferior."
