Welcome and thanks for joining Northern Manhattan Outside (I use NoMO for short... :) )
NoMO is a combination social group (for northern Manhattanites and others to get together in a relaxed venue) and an 'outdoors' group for all New Yorkers who enjoy activities such as hiking, birdwatching, stargazing, kayaking in and around Manhattan.
Beginning in the Spring and up until late Fall of '08 I led a number of walks, kayaking trips and day hikes for another Meetup group. I really enjoyed meeting so many different people from the neighborhood (the Heights, the Bronx and Inwood). Starting NoMO was the next step to continue enjoying the outdoors of northern Manhattan with my neighbors.
Many of the NoMo activities will be be focused on, but not limited to, northern Manhattan, the Bronx and Jersey. Other activities may include day hikes upstate in Harriman or Bear Mt. Park, hiking in Cold Spring or Garrison, excursions to the Bronx Zoo, Brooklyn Gardens (Hanami in April!), the beaches on Long Island, well, I can go on, but I guess you get the idea :) .
At the core NoMO is for northern Manhattanites to have fun and get together in the outdoors.
Please feel free to post on the message boards or to email me any suggestions of activities. Additionally feel free to contact me if you would like an event of yours posted on the calendar (A comedy show you are hosting, a play reading, an art gallery opening, a talk on quarks and nutrinos... etc) (I will always try to respond, though I will admit up front that sometimes I'll be a little late in responding due to work/commuting, etc. However I will always show up if I schedule an event!)
And lastly, currently I set up the group not to have any annual dues, just a 'pay as you go' option (usually $3 per activity that you attend). This is just to help cover the monthly meetup and organizing costs.
