Beatles, Central Park, & Illustrations!

First we'll visit a free exhibition at the Lincoln Center library celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America, including pop culture artifacts, correspondence, instruments, posters, photographs, interviews, and interactive displays. We'll see a separate photography exhibition as well. Next, we'll wander through Central Park for about 40 minutes, then head for lunch at a cozy nearby atrium. After lunch we'll catch the last day of the annual exhibition of  book and editorial illustrations at the Society of Illustrators on E. 63rd St ($5). We'll finish the day with another half-hour walk in the park!

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DETAILS SO YOU'RE PROPERLY PREPARED.

DISTANCE: About 3 miles.

PACE: Moderate, NOT SLOW.

LUNCH: Bring your own or buy food (light lunch, snacks, beverages) at the atrium.

COST: $5 for the Society of Illustrators, $1 for me, in part to cover Meetup's organizer fee, and the cost of lunch if you don't bring your own.

ENDING TIME: Around 5 PM, but you can leave earlier, of course.

TRANSPORTATION: The closest subway stop is the  1 train at 66th St. Lincoln Center. Consult tripplanner.mta.org,  hopstop.com, or both, since each is occasionally inaccurate.

WAITING LIST: Be patient. If you're in the top 25 on the list (shown below the main list on the right side of this page) at any time before the walk starts you can definitely come. Don't worry about huge crowds: No matter how many sign up, we've never had more than about 50 people--typically 35 to 40.

      Loved the Beatles exhibit Especially the areas with the music playing. Love them and the music. Park walk was great. Loved the particular way we took. Very scenic. The group singing near the fountain was fab. And seeing that guy with the black leather outfit and long skinny feather. Wonderful. I love new York. We are so fortunate to live here.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
