    I checked to see if I was off the waitlist before I went to bed on Saturday night - Nope! So I slept in till 11 am, and it turned out that unbeknownst to me I came off the waitlist at 8:25 AM Sunday morning. Sorry I didn't make it! Hope to attend the next one you plan.

    Sorry, I didn't attend because I was afraid I won't make it to the Easter Service at 4 p.m.
    Reading and looking at the photos taken of Flatiron, it must be a great
    tour for those who went.
    Well, next time....

    Hi, everyone,
    What really jumped out at you while touring Flatiron district?
    Did the tour guide mention anything about gentrification?
    What did you learn from this tour?

    In recent years, many neighborhoods in the City have been gentrified, losing their original unique flavors and, more importantly, their residents. This tour will enable us to appreciate this area with fresh eyes. I look forward to it.

    yes, one guest.
