UPDATED INFORMATION: LOGISTICS, FEE, PROGRAM
Based on reviewing the travel schedule and logistics I am advancing our meeting time at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal (to take the Staten Island Ferry). If you wish to go independently, are traveling by car or are based in proximity simply refer to the address details at the base of this email.
9:15AM - Plan to meet at the Panini Grill, located inside the terminal, on left side before turnstiles. I believe I've met everyone before however will bring a bright green clipboard with me to minimize the "excuse me but are you..." bit!
9:30AM - Board the Staten Island Ferry. This is a free ferry so there is no need to purchase tickets.
10:00AM - Arrival to Staten Island: St George's Ferry Terminal.
Option 1: Bus S40 to stop Richmond Terrace (Snug Harbor Rd)
Option 2: For those interested it is an estimated 10 minute taxi ride
10:40AM - Estimated arrival at Richmond Terrace (Snug Harbor Rd). An estimated 10 minute walk to Building H, History Center.
11:00AM - 1 Hour Presentation by Cara Dellatte, Archivist/Researcher at Staten Island Museum. **NOTE: I WAS JUST INFORMED THERE IS A $5 FEE PER PERSON FOR THIS TALK. PAYABLE ON DAY.**. Following the talk we will have the opportunity to view the Archives which is normally closed on Saturday. There will be handouts and Cara will be showcasing some of the items in Archives that are not normally viewable...wonder what they will be...!
12:00PM - Estimated close of talk and visit then to Archives
1:00PM - Estimated wrap up. For those interested a visit to the Museum is $2. Note the Snug Harbor grounds (where Building H is based) is a beautiful spot to check out.
Then it's back to the ferry terminal taxi or bus and hopefully filled with many new ideas.
