This Meetup takes places at one of New York City's famous landmark. Also the Meetup will involve a lot of people photography. Add to the people photography we are going to shoot the stressful things people do at this famous landmark.
So where is the stressful place in New York City? That will be the “world” famous New York City landmark called Coney Island.
So where is the stress? That will come from mostly the watching and photographing the people that are doing those stressful things like the amusement park rides and attractions. Also the stress that you see in people sitting on a bench watching life go by. I think we all like that type of stress!
1 - The Meetup location is on the corner of Surf Ave and Stillwell Ave. If you exit the subway station on Surf Ave make a right turn that will be Stillwell Ave. The Nathans is diagonally across the street from the meet up location.
2 - If the Meetup is postponed, for example due to rain, it will take place in July as the following week is the Mermaid Parade and there is a Meetup Saturday for that day.
3 - The trains N,Q,F,D all go to Coney Island. My train ride from Jackson Heights to Coney Island on the F train was one and half hours long. Not including the time to walk to the subway! So make sure you give yourself enough time to get there on time. My plans to get their very early and have lunch at Nathans before the meetup.
4 - I will be wearing that day blue jeans, black shoes, blue/white checkerboard shirt and wearing glasses. Also I will have DSLR camera around my neck and camera bag on my back. So I should stand out of the crowd. I might be wearing a baseball cap as I seem to have lost the one I been wearing for the prior meetups.
5 - Ok some of you are going to be late! So at 3:00PM there is a second meetup point.
I will meet anyone that is late in front of Ruby’s Bar and Grill which is on the boardwalk http://www.rubysconeyisland.com/ . I will not be inside the bar but standing outside on the boardwalk. I will only wait for five minutes at outside of Ruby's and then rejoin the rest of the group.
6 - I will be collecting $3 at the first or those that are late, meetup locations before we start. I do hate asking, so be nice when you see me and just hand me the $3 dollars.
Hope to see you all on this Meetup!
Some snapshots of people doing stressful things at Coney Island I shot last weekend. Enjoyed!
