The Amateur Astronomers Association of NY and the NYC Physics and Astronomy Meetup are happy to announce that astronomy observing sessions will now regularly be hosted in the Bronx at Woodlawn Cemetery.  HopStop has better train directions to the Intersection of Jerome Avenue and Bainbridge but I could not paste that link.  Here are the Google Maps directions from Union Square by train:,-73.877864(Jerome+Avenue+and+Bainbridge+Avenue,+Bronx,+New+York,+10467,+United+States)

We encourage anyone wishing to bring a telescope or binoculars to do so, and if you require assistance learning to use your telescope, we ask that you please notify us beforehand so that we can research your scope and verify we have an expert available to assist.

for additional details, please see:

    Public transport up to the Bronx looks like a mess this weekend. We'll try in April.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
