    Is anyone driving from Manhattan?

    March 12, 2014

    • Len L.

      Hi Joyce, I knew your name sounded familiar :). The midtown tunnel is fine. I can meet you on your block. I need to check how long it will take to drive to Pt Washington - probably should allow for an hour. I think the group is supposed to meet at 10, is that right? If so, we can meet around 8:45 - 9:00. How does that sound?

      March 13, 2014

    • Joyce S

      Yes, we should be in Port W by 10:00 AM. Your e-mail address popped up so I sent you an e-mail instead -- easier!
