Join Friends from Bayside, Hiking & Nature Meetup, Hiking and Outdoor Adventure, 5 BORO Exploration, Alternative to the Bar Scene, Gateway to Adventure, NYC Chill Hiking, Camping and Outdoor Activity Meetup and the Astoria Newbies as we walk from Long Island City, across the 59th Street Bridge and through Central Park a little before ending at The Museum of Natural History.
See this link for the route: http://goo.gl/maps/EyxJq
• We will meet on the corner of Crescent Street and Queens Plaza North at 11 am as seen via this link: http://goo.gl/maps/toZLg - We depart at exactly 11:20 am so don't be late.
As you can see from the link above, the closest subway stops are the 7, N, Q to Queensboro Plaza and the E, M, R to Queens Plaza. It's a short walk to the meetup location from either of those stops.
If you plan to drive and you need an address for your GPS you can use this: 25-11 Queens Plaza North, Long Island City, NY 11103 - I do not know about parking in the area.
Distance: 3.7 miles
Duration: 1.5 hours for the walking part
Once we get to the museum, people can choose to go inside or not. I will personally be checking out the Space Show: Dark Universe located in the planetarium. Afterwards I may or may not go into the museum.
If you've never been to a meetup, don't worry, there are always new people, so don't be too nervous. The event host is very nice and friendly. You can come alone or bring a friend or two or three. Upon your arrival I'll greet you and introduce you to some people. It's really quite painless.
If you have any questions prior to or on the day of the event, please do not hesitate to give me (Beau) a call at [masked]
Rain: no go. Snow is a go. =)
