    An email went out to who? I never received an email either. I was waiting for the winner to be announced here on Meetup so we could all know what's going on. What's the deal lynman91??

      For all those that didn't get the emails... Check your meetup settings carefully regarding alerts. Lynman is pretty good about checking on comments and stuff, so it might actually be that your accounts aren't configured to receive some notifications.

    I asked the moderator who won the contest. He said an email had been sent out weeks ago. I explained to him that my email sometimes gets bounced by MeetUp, that I never received it, and asked if he would just email me the winner. He has not responded. I have no idea why he simply didn't post it here with the comments for the event. However, regardless of where it was posted or how the selection was publicized, I would still like to know who won and take a look at the winning entry.
    Is there anyone here who would post the winner or at least email me the same.
    Thanks. Steven

      Hi, Govt Lawyer. The winning photo was the 9th from the end, posted by Yelena on 3/18, showing a park ranger feeding a seal. If I remember correctly, Lynman chose it b/c it was "a little zoo, a little NYC, had action and included people", or something like that. Hope that helps. Maggie Glanville

    Always a favorite place of mine. I actually got stuck using a Sony Cybershot point and shoot since my other camera wouldn't cooperate!

      March 15, 2014

  • claire b.

    HI everyone. The Zoo is at 830 Fifth Ave which is off 65th Street. For some wonky reason if you click on the map in the lead post it takes you to 75th Street.

    Is there anything besides the fee for the zoo I don't like bringing a lot of money with me. Also, is there a spot we can meet? And who do I look for? Thanks!

    This seems to interesting: Haven't been to the zoo in years. Has anyone gone recently? And, what exhibits are cool to look at?
