Hey guys, been a fun summer so far. We threw out a few ideas at the last meet up and ill rehash them here:
Fort Tyrone Park Cloisters
Coney Island again haha (maybe we can start from brighton beach this time)
A few more that I looked into:
Staten Island Ship Graveyard (may be breaking and entering/ tough in summer foliage)
(note: the link lists of other cool sites, Ive been to seaview hospital a few years ago, place is awesome, but hard to find your way in the summer)
Bronx Zoo (suggested donation weds)
Roosevelt Island (tram ride, and a few old buildings, check google)
Please add more, the summer is coming to a close!
I like all those ideas, especially the ship graveyard.
How is the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens? I haven't been there but have heard it is quite nice.
Chinatown? Been once before
Top of the Rock? never been
http://www.nycstreetfairs.com/sched.html ?? One this saturday
The Ship Graveyard would be my first choice !
But, If Stan could get access to Governors Island, that would also be interesting.
I won't be able to participate in a MeetUp until Saturday, September 3rd., if anyone else is available.
I would like a another crack at Governors island if there was special access. I didnt spend nearly enough time and was rushed when I went.
Let me add DUMBO to the list. Steve and I talked about it at the Battery Park City meetup.
Also, I've heard that there's an old smallpox hospital on roosevelt island which has just re-opened to the public that could be a lot of fun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smallpox_Hospital
My VIP access to Governor's Island was through member Fotoguy20d. Maybe he'd be willing to help us out again...
Jason just posted about meeting up this weekend, anyone else up for it? How about we try to make this list one entry shorter :P
