Hello Fellow Photographers:
The forecast for tomorrow’s Subway Art event is high 54° with 20MPH winds and 60% chance of rain. THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE – RAIN OR SHINE!! Please dress appropriately for the weather as well as for the subways (stations may be a little stuffy and subway cars may have the air conditioner on high). Wear comfy walking shoes and bring snacks / water.
As always, please review the entire details on the event page and make the necessary preparations. The main meetup point will be inside of Penn Station; entrance located at West 33rd Street and 8th Avenue, by the waiting room that's across from Taco Bell. Just go down the escalator and it's straight ahead. Nearest subways are 34th & 8th (A, C, E), 34th & 7th (1, 2, 3), and 34th and 6th (B, D, F, M, N, Q, R).
PLEASE BE ON TIME!! We will not answer any calls or messages after 11:30am, and once we are underground – cell phones will not work. If you are late, you can always meet us at the second point (Fulton Street) at 2pm. We suggest that you download and print the PDF map of second meetup point just in case: http://files.meetup.com/1605023/Meeting%20Point%20Fulton.pdf. We will have maps and split the group up to ride on different routes from the first meetup point. We recommend not wandering off alone with your pricey equipment exposed in the stations or on the subway. It will be better to stay with your group!!
Currently there are over 100 RSVPs. If you RSVP “yes” and can’t/won’t make it, please change it to “no” so that Verena and I have a better idea of how many people will arrive.
This is the first time we are doing something like this and we are very excited about capturing some beautiful artwork in the subways. We encourage everyone to ask questions -- Verena & I will do our best to answer them. You can also ask questions to other members who are more experienced in photography. We are looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.
