Upper Manhattan... the east side!

Hello everyone,

I will send out a few emails in the coming days about miscellaneous items but I wanted to send this one out to announce our next outing.

I realize we've done a great variety of location in Manhattan but one of the parts that we are missing to do more of is upper Manhattan.

We've done Washington Heights but one area that we are missing is the area along the Harlem River from around 155th Street to the High Bridge/Park. This area is mainly recreational but it provides an interesting look at the neighborhood, views of the Harlem River and the Bronx as well as a close up visit to High Bridge and the Water tower. This area makes for an interesting walk and moves us a little away from the very active streets of Washington Heights (the west side)

We will meet at Penn Station to take the train from there to 168 Street. We will walk from there along the east side and end up at one of my favorite places for Dominican food... unless of course you prefer Salvadorian. Final decision will be made on the road.

See here for a rough map of the area and the walk: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=204008971682293897154.0004d3dcd33173a6fbef9&msa=0&ll=40.843684,-73.93786&spn=0.018505,0.038495&iwloc=1476251229011218323

I hope to see you Saturday morning at 9.30am at Penn Station (31st & 7th Avenue).

best!

Gus

    Odds bodikins! My photos look awful downsized by Meetup. I can't see a full-res method of stepping thru them. Don't have this problem on Google+. There's a better show of them here: http://thelightcavalry.zenfolio.com/uppereastside .

    Thanks for this meet, Gus - very worthwhile. It's good practice taking disciplined shots while bursting for a piss and no feeling in your fingers!

    I would love to go (at least for a while) but think it would be more practical for me to join you at 168th St. Any idea when you might be arriving there?. Thanks, Ana

      The corner of 31st and 7th, by the NJ Transit entrance.

    I think it over to Century 21 this morning to buy a warm hat. The weather might make this interesting

    This sounds like allot of fun. Especially at the end of this photo shoot going for Dominican food is the icing on the cake. I am definitely up for this. See you all on Saturday. Best Regards, Donna
