Day In New York City - Rockefeller Center and a Museum

  • January 4, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

UPDATE: THIS MEETUP WILL BE RESCHEDULED- DATE TO BE DETERMINED. POSSIBLY JANUARY 11TH, 2014. I WON'T KNOW FOR SURE UNTIL MID-WEEK.  My MoMA membership allows for me to have 5 guests with me each pay only $5 admission (Instead of $20)  A few people have told me the Magritte exhibit is wonderful. Since the tree will be gone, we might want to just go to MoMA  &  and window shop along Fifthe Avenue. There are some reasonable Deli's & cafe's near MoMA if we want to do that also.

                                **********  Stay Tuned  **********

Let's go to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, check out the holiday windows and maybe a trip to the Museum of Modern Art......the date is flexible.  The tree is only lit until 1/7/2014.  It would be better to go on Friday, 1/3 if we can because it wouldn't be the weekend, but we can go on Sat., 1/4 if it is a better day for everyone.

My suggestion is we carpool over to the North Bergen Park-N-Ride and take the bus through the Lincoln Tunnel.  From there, we can either walk or take public transportation depending on the weather.

    Well, we shoveled out (and thankfully, a neighbor did my driveway with their snowblower). I will know by midweek if I'm able to go on Jan 11th ( to reschedule this for 1/11) At this point, I'm probably going anyway tomorrow, so if anyone wants to meet me at MoMA in the afternoon, email me & we can plan a time to meet, exchange cell phone #s, etc. If Jan 11th doesn't work out, we can try for another Saturday. My MoMA membership allows 5 people to come with me at a $5 entry fee.

    Hi everyone- My car has a major problem and will be in the shop till next Tues/Wed. Sorry, I'm not going to make to NYC with you all. Have fun.

    Emi & Everyone, I will watch the weather & what the snow accumulation actually does, talk to Donna, and reschedule this event if need be due to the weather on Friday. I've also cleared my schedule for the 4th. I may have a conflict on the 11th, but- maybe we could do a Sunday? The only downside is, the tree at Rockefeller Center comes down January 7th. Emi, my neighbors went to see the Magritte exhibit also & told me it is a Must-See.
    Most of us live in NW Morris or Sussex County, so Let's play it by ear and see what the snow and the wind leaves us.
    **** Happy New Year ****

    I did not rsvp for this nice outing as was unable to make this event on the 4th due to a baby shower conflict. But I did manage to get to the Magritte exhibit yesterday at MOMA. It is a must see! I'll check this site in case the event is rescheduled due to weather.

    Happy New Year to all.

    Merrill, it looks looks like I'll be driving back through some pretty rough weather....if I do get home on Jan. 3...it is going to be really late and after all the driving I doubt if I'll be up to going to the city. Friday in Sussex County at this point looks like substantial snowfall. I may be shoveling out on Saturday.

    December 30, 2013

    • Merrill

      Good point about the weather- drive carefully. Let's see what the snow brings on Thursday & Friday. If we are all still shoveling out on Saturday, we might have to reschedule. Let's sleep on it. Call me when you can Thurs. night or Friday.

      December 31, 2013

  • Donna

    Merrill, if you want to reschedule to go to the museum, I am booked on Jan. 18 and Jan. 25. I could go on Jan. 11 as long as the weather is ok. I would check with the others. Maybe send them emails????

    I am sad to say that I will not be able to go. I hope everyone has fun - Happy New Year!

    Wednesday or Thursday of this week, we should all decide on transportation and where to meet. From Rockaway, Lakeland Bus is my best mode of transportation. We could meet right in Port Authority in front of the Information Booth so we could walk over to Rockefeller Center together. I'm suggesting 11 am as a time to meet there. That way, we don't have to leave too early on a Saturday and we can most likely find an inexpensive place to have lunch. or we could do MoMA first & eat an early dinner. We can modify the meeting time when we take a poll/discuss it laer in the week. This should be a fun day for all, Make sure to wear comfortable shoes :-)

    Hi. Sorry but I will not be able to go. Everyone have a great time.

    Hi, Merrill - do you know if photos are permitted inside MOMA? I suspect not, but want to study a bit about proper technique if they are! Thanks - and Merry Christmas!

    December 22, 2013

    • Tammie

      Thanks, Merrill! Will everyone be able to enter with your Member pass at $5 each? I can't afford the $25 regular fee!

      December 23, 2013

    • Merrill

      I'm not sure if it is 4 or 5 guests at $5, but maybe you all can average the cost so Everyone gets to go for less? That's one solution:-) it's only guests- right now that is 6 people. I will call the museum later this week & find out & post it- I don't think MoMA is open on Mondays

    The 4th of Jan sounds great,love to go to The Museum of Art, see the tree and the Christmas displays!

  • Tammie

    Yay! I'm off the weekend of 1/4!!! That Friday would be okay, so far, too, so I wil, RSVP "yes" with those two dates in mind!

    1 · December 7, 2013

  • Merrill

    I can do it on Fri 1/3 or Sat 1/4 - Let's what the majority would like to do:-) $ people can enter MoMA for $5 uest price as I'm a member.

    December 7, 2013

  • Donna

    It looks like the tree will be lit until 1/7. New Year's Day is on Wed., I was wondering if we could put this event on Friday, 1/3, with an inclement weather date of Saturday, 1/4. I think a lot of people will have off from work that day or they may be able to get the day off. I suggest we go to the city and see Rockefeller Center and mosey around depending on the weather. We can also check out the MOMA.

  • Merrill

    We can decide on a date after a few more people sign up. I'm thinking after Dec 20th or closer to New Year's.

    It depends on the date but sounds like fun.

    December 5, 2013

  • Merrill

    Thanks Donna. Tammie, the date is yet to be determined. Email me which weekends you are able to attend. I'm hoping a group of us can enjoy the day together; Store window displays can certainly be part of the fun:-)

    December 4, 2013

    • Tammie

      Merrill - I checked my sked and have plans for the only non-working weekend. This is good, but I would have enjoyed this meetup! Have fun!

      December 4, 2013

  • Tammie

    I might like this, but work every other weekend. Seeing the store windows would be wonderful!

    December 4, 2013

  • Donna

    I'm posting this for Merrill. Who is interested and when? What shall we plan? I won't be able to attend but that doesn't mean that others in our group can't go and have a good time.
