FRIENDLY NYC Ultimate Frisbee Message Board › Saturday & Sunday Ultimate - Riverside Park!
|Damien L. Duchamp||
New York, NY
With leagues slowing down and a permit in the works (thanks Jehv), we'll head back to Riverside as to avoid playing in the dusty spot known as 'Big Dirt.' Please make note of the meeting spot I've added for those that can't find the group. After walking up along the fields from South to North, wait near the fountain on the South side of the big soccer field. I think this will help people find each other. Also don't be discouraged if people show up late... weekends are tough!
As a note for new people, cleats are okay, we generally don't use stall counts, boundaries are flexible, and all skill levels are welcome! It helps to bring a light and dark shirt to break up teams.
There are also two ways to stay in touch outside of Meetup.com:

CURRENT SEASON - SUMMER/SPRING (Mar - Oct)
There are four days that we play:
- Saturdays at 10am, Riverside Park (103rd and West End)
- Sundays at 4pm, Riverside Park (103rd and West End)
- Tuesdays at 5:30pm, Riverside Park (103rd and West End)
- Thursdays at 5:30pm, Riverside Park (103rd and West End)
The Riverside location is all the way West just off the water between 102nd and 108th Streets. You can only enter the park at 103rd and 108th. The best way to get there is to take the 1 local to 103rd Street. Walk West until you see an entrance that takes you down to the fields through the park. After walking down the steps from the street, you will see a path that goes left and another that goes right. Walk down the left path until you see a stone wall and stairs that go down to the fields. From South to North there will be one small soccer field surrounded by a track (red 'A' on map), another field with two softball fields (closer to 103rd/104th st) and another that is a giant soccer field (closer to 106th st). After walking down the steps, you will see the small Soccer field on your left. Start from this Southern-most field and walk North on the path to find our game. If you see no one, the meeting spot is the South side of the large soccer field. This spot is identified on the map below, a small square with little dots around it.
In case we can't find space at Riverside, we'll play at a big dirt patch located at 87th Street and Central Park West. Take the A/C train to 86th street, enter on North side of 86th street and you will see a dirt space to your left.
