Let's Explore DUMBO and Vinegar Hill

  • Apr 19, 2014 · 1:30 PM

For our April event, we'll head Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. This neighborhood has gone through several incarnations over the centuries, as a home to mixed residential/commercial developments, industrial warehouses, artists, and now Internet start-ups and media firms. We'll also include DUMBO's smaller neighbor, Vinegar Hill. We'll see an 1870s tobacco inspection building, a building that the NY Times said, "in a New York of secret delights," was "a secret secret" (you'll have to come along to find out), and a restored 1922 carousel, among other secret and not-so-secret things.

Please read the reservation and cancellation policy, which you can find at http://www.meetup.com/Lets-Explore-New-Yorks-Neighborhoods/pages/RSVP_and_Cancellation_Policy/. Keep in mind that cancellations must be at least 24 hours in advance.

- If your name appears on the "attending" list before Tuesday, April 15, then you'll receive an e-mail with the details (including meeting location and contact information) on that date.

- If you appear on the "attending" list later that week, then you'll get the e-mail within 24 hours.

- If you are moved to the "attending" list on Friday, April 18, then you'll get the e-mail later that day.

If you are on the waitlist, then remember to check back regularly, since you might be added to the attending list as late as the evening of April 18. If you are on the waitlist and can no longer attend, please change your RSVP status to "no."

If you are on the "attending" list but haven't gotten the e-mail by the specified time, then feel free to contact me directly. (Go to my Meetup profile page and click "send email.") Please do not ask for details on the discussion board. I check my e-mail regularly up to the morning of the event. Thanks!

    Thanks everyone for coming! Great group and perfect weather. In the future, I'd prefer if people did not provide directions on the message board. The person who asked for directions was on the waitlist with about 50 people ahead of her. I'm sorry to be so strict, but giving out the details to people who ask is not fair to everyone else on the waitlist who signed up earlier. Thank you for your cooperation.

    I'd just like to remind everyone: if you have an issue for the event organizers (Jack and me), such as not receiving the meeting location, please e-mail us directly. The event description above describes how to do so. That way you don't clog everyone's inbox. Thanks!
