    Ok so, as usually follows, when I'm finally ready to venture towards these things, the weathers not! Tues and Wed were beautiful nights :-D ..... So, from my window, it looks very bleak, yes?

      I don't think the weather will cooperate tonight, at least for stargazing.

    Is anyone willing to meet me at the main security entrance to the campus grounds? The last time I tried to, find my way to Pupin Hall, it took me 30 minutes and I didn't make the lecture.... Thnx ..... I'm at mobile[masked]-8478. ..... I usually take the M5 or M7 Harlem line from midtown. If anyone knows an efficient way to get as close to Pupin Hall, via pub transportation, that would be awesome too :-) ..... Thnx

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
