An eruv is a ritual jewish enclosure made for the purpose of allowing activities which are normally prohibited on Shabbat, specifically allowing carrying things between private and semi-private domains, like using a walking stick, or pushing a stroller.

I walked the nearly 50 kilometres in Manhattan, trying to follow the route of this wire, circling the island.
