MoCoWo: Coworking on a Train from Queens to Coney Island

In conjunction with the folks from Coworking Community NYC we're going to host a mobile coworking day (MoCoWo) and take a trip to Coney Island! The plan is to take over the first car of a Q train bound for Coney Island. We'll buckle down and work offline for the entire trip (except when above ground, where you can check your email via hotspot - bring one if you have one) then when we get to Coney Island we'll grab a couple of Nathan's Famous dogs and hangout, maybe do a little more work, then head back to NWC for the rest of the day. Or maybe we'll cowork in CI - anyone know a good spot?

Here's how it will work; Manhattan/Bronx and BK folks will all meet at 10ish at the Bread Factory Cafe at 785 Lexington Ave, near the corner of 61st Street. Once we've grabbed some coffee and we'll head to the subway, where we'll board the first car of the 10:29 AM Q train bound for Astoria. When the train gets there, we'll get out, stretch our legs and get on the first car of the Q bound for Coney Island. If you're a Queens resident, you can meet us at Ditmars Blvd for the 10:47am train to Coney Island, or hop on our Q train at your closest local Q connection according to this schedule. All of that should get us at Coney Island by 11:59am, just in time for lunch.

If all of this sounds too complicated and you just want to jump on a train to Coney Island and meet us there, take whatever train you want and be at Nathan's around noon.

Does it all make sense? It doesn't to me either, but that's not going to stop me from trying it. Contact [masked] with questions or suggestions for this crazy (never been done?) plan.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
