How will it work?

1 pm - We start at City Hall Park (located at City Hall obviously), by the fountain. The fountain is quite photogenic as well as the flowers, monuments and art work located throughout the park. We will stay there for about 30 minutes and then move on to our next spot. If you notice that everyone is gone, head over to the next location.

1:30 pm - St. Paul's courtyard and take some pictures of the grave sites as well as memorials. This will be a leisurely stroll lasting approximately 20 minutes as we walk about 4 blocks to our next site  2:50 pm - our next location is Trinity church and take pictures along the block and behind the church. Alexander Hamilton's grave is located here (His face is on the $10 bill)

2:00 pm - Across the street is the New York Stock Exchange where we will stay for about 10 minutes. 

2:15 pm - we then walk to the famous Wall Street Charging Bull

4:25 pm - Bowling Green Park to rest up and snap a few pictures (the train station structure is quite photogenic, statues across the street, interesting architecture, etc...)

4:45 pm A short distance away is The Sphere in Battery Park 

5:00 pm Castle Clinton will be our next stop, the Korean War Memorial is located inside.

4:20 pm the final destination is the shoreline of Battery Park facing the Statue of liberty in the distance and boats sailing off. just remember, the entire tour is just over 1 mile and will last approximately 2 hrs. We will not wait for stragglers so if you want to stay with the group, adhere to the time schedule. (Note: if you want to linger at a favorite location, feel free to photograph a little more and catch up with us later) Also, there are a number of other sites to see along the route (Woolworth bldg, St. Paul church yard, etc...) Hope to see you there.

    I just figured out that I need to work this weekend to finish a project. I wont be able to come. Changed my RSVP, so people in the waiting list can attend in my place. Sorry for the last minute change. I was really hoping to get some sun, meet all of you, and have fun with my camera. Till next time.

    I'm a native of the city, worked in the city, and have been just about everywhere in the city. Am in the city, often (all the boroughs). Mostly photographing alone and am looking forward to a group association.
