Death March to Brooklyn and NYC

  • Oct 20, 2012 · 11:00 AM

** Update 10/19/12 **

The forecast is party cloudy – high 67 degrees.

There is currently a high number of RSVPs. If you are on the RSVP list and will not /cannot make it, please be courteous and change your RSVP from “yes” to “no” so that someone else can sign up and attend.

I plan to take attendance, because there have been too many no-shows. The Photowalk will start at 11am sharp!! Make sure you arrive to the meetup point on-time! See me when you arrive. I will be wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans (sorry I usually don’t wear colorful clothing in cooler weather). I will not wait for late comers, and I will not take any calls or messages after 11am. If you are on the list and do not attend, or you are late, you will be marked as a “no show” - and this could affect your membership with the group.

However, if you want to meet us at Brooklyn Bridge Park, email me through my profile by the end of tonight - so I don’t mark you as a “no show”. I don’t know what time exactly we will be there – but I’m guessing around 12:30pm – depending how long it will take the group to cross the Manhattan Bridge. The meetup point at the park will be on the corner of Fulton and Water Street – by the benches (near the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory). Make sure you see me so I can take your attendance. I will post on the event page where I am when I get there.

Please review all the details on this event page. Thanks!

Yes, you read it right -- a Death March -- meaning an extra long photowalk!!


The meetup point is at Bowery and Canal Street in front of HSBC. This is a free event.


We will walk across the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn. When we arrive to Brooklyn Bridge Park, we can separate for an hour or so to shoot photos, rest, eat and use the restrooms. Then we will walk back to NYC via the Brooklyn Bridge. The photowalk ends at City Hall Subway Station. This may take up majority of the afternoon.


* Warning: This may be a very long photowalk and it could be strenuous for some of you. Please consider your health risks before you RSVP.


* Be on time! This event starts at 11am sharp!! So give yourself plenty of time to travel. Check for service changes or delays. I will not wait for latecomers and I will not answer calls, emails and/or messages after 11am.


* Please be courteous and change your RSVP accordingly. If you RSVP “yes” and cannot or will not make it, please change it to “no”.


* Dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.


* Bring snacks and a drink to stay hydrated.

* Don’t forget your camera, charged batteries and empty memory cards!!


If you have any questions, text me only before the day of the event. Please make sure you identify yourself in your message, so I know who your are.

    This was my first walk with the group and definately not my last. Had a great time doing something I wouldn't have done on my own. I am a very quiet person and I thank the few people that took a few seconds to make me feel welcome. M.B. and DUMBO were great, many wonderful photo ops. Unfortunately, due to prior commitments I kinda flew over the Bk.Bridge.

    It was a challanging photowalk - especially a crowded Brooklyn Bridge, but it was still successful. Thank you to those who attended.

    It was a good meetup. Brooklyn Bridge was busier than usual due to the cancer walk. It made for a hectic shoot. I enjoyed the Brooklyn Bridge Park. I never been there before.

    Great meetup! Thanks everyone! My friends visiting from Japan and Australia loved it as well. We decided to stay longer in Brooklyn because they had never been, but walked back and got some great shots of the Brooklyn bridge.

    My schedule has changed for tomorrow and it looks like I'm not going to be able to make it. I'm sure this makes someone else happy. Enjoy everyone and I'll catch you next time.

    Yes, you're right, thanks for confirming that I have my days mixed up. That's what happens when you're not working! Friends of mine are coming in from California this Friday night, early before the conference, to get some shooting in. So we'll be hanging out, doing photography et al. If there was more space in the Death March, I would have invited them along, but since room is so tight, I thought it best to give my space up...

    Photo expo is 10/25 to 10/27 conference is 10/24 to 10/27.

    Hey, I'm giving up my spot because I've decided to go to the Photo Expo. I'm sorry to miss being with everyone, but hope someone can snag my vacant space and have fun for the both of us!

    October 16, 2012

    • Sally

      Sorry you won’t be with us. Enjoy the Photo Expo and see you at the next meetup.

      October 16, 2012

  • Archana L.

    I am guessing someone has taken Astrid's spot :(

    October 16, 2012

    • Sally

      Don’t give up! Usually people drop out at the last minute. Keep checking!!

    So far, the weather looks good for this event - partly cloudy, high 65 degrees… :)

    October 16, 2012

  • Amy D.

    Hurray, I got in!
    I may also bring a guest or two, but I didn't include them in my RSVP just to leave spots off for other members... Hope that's okay!

    October 16, 2012

    • Sally

      That's fine, Amy. See you there!!

      October 16, 2012

  • Pablo T.

    Just removed my guest so there should be one spot free

    October 16, 2012

    • Sally

      Thanks, Pablo - that does help.

      October 16, 2012

  • Sally

    I've been getting requests to increase the limit of RSVPs, which I cannot do. For those who are on the RSVP list and cannot/will not attend, please change your RSVP from "yes" to "no" so that others who really want to attend can sign up. Thank you for your cooperation.

    October 16, 2012

  • Amy D.

    Was wondering... Not sure I'll make it by 11am, but about what time do you think you might get to Brooklyn Bridge Park... I'd love to join you there and do the rest of the walk...

    October 14, 2012

    • Sally

      Hi Amy! Not sure what time we'll be at the park. It depends on how long it takes us to cross the Manhattan Bridge.

      October 14, 2012

    • Amy D.

      Thanks Sally... unfortunately I didn't RSVP quick enough... but I'll keep my eye out if anyone drops out. I may end up walking the bridge that day anyway ;)

      October 15, 2012

  • Sally

    This event is currently full. There is no waiting list. Please check in periodically to see if anyone drops outs and free up some open spots. Thanks!

    Really, really wish I could go. I have to go to an improv class from 1-4pm. So upset that I can't make this. Wish it was on Sunday. :(

  • Sally

    Hi Nicola. Ending time is difficult to determine because it is a long Photowalk. All are welcome to leave the event early if you need to.

    September 25, 2012

  • Devon M. L.
