Time to meet in NYC area

 

I wanted to set up a meet and greet with anyone in the New York area..

Due to my job situation in the past, I could not do this before but now I am ready. I want to set up a meet at Rye playland area in ny.. I will foward the address and cord soon. you can also google that area if you like!

I would love to do this in Aug and hope it will be a
a good time for all.. I know that I wont be able to make every one happy about the time and place but will do my best to try.

The place is fun and has a great place to eat and drink if you like. Or you dont have to pay anything and sit on the boardwalk and enjoy the sound. The family will also like it since there is a amusment park there. I think it is a great place to start a yearly meet. Maybe next year in the city itself. I would love to hear from anyone that would be intrested and the I will send you more information if you want.

If anyone has a better idea I would love to hear from you. I just thought since we all has GPS, then we all have Cars. trucks, buses, or motercycles that this would be a good place to start. lol

Hope to hear from you all..

Btw I am the author of the Offbeat tourest attractions.. if that helps.. lol

I'm about 330+ miles from being local, so it sounds like I need to schedule a business trip in the area around this time...

Mulberry Street NYC,NY

Just returned after spending a few days in NYC. I went exclusively for the San Gennaro Festival, as I always do year after year.
The food is SOOoooooooo good! and the beer is dang good also.

That might be a good location for a meeting place in the future, because it runs for three weeks.

Was this the event going on in the Chinatown/Little Italy area of Manhattan? I drove through the area this weekend.

If so, you would definitely need GPS to find each other there!

Did not do it yet

Did not get anyone that wanted to go to the place so I did not push the idea.. Besides, Was out of work for a while but now back at work.

For anyone that would be intrested, I will be a actor at the haunted house that they will be having there. "Scared By the Sound" is what it is called..

Would love to see ya all there..

Back again..

Since no one thought it would be good to go to Rye Playland ( yes, it is too far from the city)

I thought I would try something differnt...

Since I work near the ESB (Empire State Building) I go to a place called "Heartland Brewery" I even have a POI file for all of them in NYC.

I go there a lot and if anyone ever decides to show up there, Give me a shout, and anytime during the week after work, I can be there!

Maybe after the holidays, We can try to set up a meet there too..

Any thoughts on this new idea?

Probably summer is a better time for this. It would give you a better time frame to coordinate the whole thing. Just my thought.

We'll be as safe as we can, hopefully this trip will be as uneventful as the last one. I will miss the snow actually, although I haven't seen much so far this winter. I think we've had more inches of the road treatment garbage Penndot dumped than snow.

Just had a brand new hood put on my car about two or three months ago and the paint is already chipped sad
