NYC Trip????? Any Interest?

  • December 23, 2013 · 10:00 AM

I'm wondering....is anyone free on Monday, December 23rd for a NYC trip? Please RSVP Yes if you are SERIOUS....I am going to visit the tree, the craft fair at Bryant Park, the craft fair inside Grand Central Station, and enjoy food and hopefully a brewery somewhere along the way. I plan on taking the morning commuter ferry from Beacon to the train station in Beacon, spending the day and follow the same route home. This is INTEREST ONLY, I want to know who is free and interested...... :-)

    Nothing can stop us, not lost keys, missed trains and ferries, not the rain or puddles, and the crazy umbrella drivers; we always have a blast and this was a day full of laughs from the get-go. I can only imagine how silly we would have been on a good day, and I'm SURE we would have been asked to leave the Sex Museum if we got there. ;-) I feel another trip in our future, I do want to go there. I got my ferry ride in so it was a beautiful albeit rainy and gloomy thing. We enjoyed a yummy meal at the Heartland Brewery. The windows at Saks and Lord and Taylor were beautiful, along with the ceiling of Saks. It was a great day, thank you all for making it such fun!!! :-)

    Ah, an idea, anyone in the Middletown area should take the train from Middletown to Hoboken and take the Path train. There is an 8:15am Middletown train. I'll post more later on this. :-)

    The ferry is 7:59am and the fare is $1.75 each way. I'm going to arrive about 7:50. Please put your departure place (Newburgh or Debb's in Beacon) in a comment so we know who to look for where. Thanks!! :-)

    You need 2-3 business days for mailed online tickets,more time during holiday season. So, you can purchase round trip peak on platform from machines. You can purchase ahead of time, good for 60 days

    December 18, 2013

  • Deborah S.

    Anyone who wants to park at my place in Wappingers a Falls near I-84,please let me know so I can tell cab how many. We are taking 8:20am train, and we need to purchase tickets on the platform at machine. So, meet at my apt at 7:35am, cab at 7:40am to leave. Hit my pic and hit letter icon or message on meetup for event

    December 17, 2013

    • Deborah S.

      Or purchase round trip peak ticket from Beacon at 8:20am, return 12/23/13 from Grand Central online and print

      December 17, 2013

    • Deborah S.

    Hello everyone planning to go on NYC trip Monday. I will be leaving the Newburgh BBB parking lot at 7:00 am SHARP!!!! If any people on this side of the bridge would rather go by car, please let me know. I have room for four people plus myself. Sheryl is still planning to go by ferry and is actually considering making the ferry trip a meetup also!!!!!! You have a choice. First people to ask for a car ride will be in!!! Thx!!! See you all soon!!!! Xoxo

    Update!! Friends on the Newburgh side of the river, let's meet at the Newburgh ferry (8:00?) and meet the Beacon people in Beacon for the 8:20 (last peak) train. If you miss it you'll have to drive across!! I will check on the ferry times but I'm guessing 8:00am in Newburgh. Once we get to NYC we can split up if we want to, we can meet to eat later if people want to go separate ways. I will hit the Grand Central and Bryant Park craft fairs, maybe the Sex Museum and a brew pub. Nothing is set in stone. Beacon-side people can meet at Debb's place and take a taxi. Please email Debb (click on her name) for directions to her place. The peak train fare is $40.50, ferry is $1 (I think), Debb will organize the taxi for the Beacon people and you can split the fare. :-) First return peak train out of GC is 4:14 to connect to the ferry at 5:34....if you return earlier you'll have to take a taxi if your vehicle is in Newburgh.

    December 17, 2013

    • Deborah S.

      GC? Debb

      December 17, 2013

    • Deborah S.

      So , round trip peak for $40.50 online

      December 17, 2013

  • Sheryl

    Currently we are thinking to meet in Beacon at Debb's apartment (8:15, taxi 8:20) and take a taxi van to the station, less than a 5 minute ride. We will catch the first off-peak train (8:46) and return whenever. It is simple to purchase tickets at the machines on the platform. As it evolves I'll keep posting it. :-)

    December 11, 2013

  • Sheryl

    I've checked out fares/schedules....off peak round trip tickets are $30.50. Off peak rates start at 8:46am in Beacon, arrive NYC 10:13. Return off peak at 3:50, arrive Beacon at 5:08. Peak rates are $10 higher. We can take a taxi from Newburgh to Beacon for roughly $3 each, each way. jmp (JoAnne) offered us secure indoor parking in Newburgh up from the ferry lot. She suggested the van taxi too. Those are my thoughts...... :-)

      Sounds good. I'm goin to go down to Beacon station and check out where ticket purchase and parking lots are as I'm 5 min away. Tryin to have John pick me up so park for free where I live. Then we can have a meetin point at station

      December 5, 2013

    • Deborah S.

      John I am 5 min ride to station in Beacon. Can you pick me up I'm in Vista Point apts Linda can park her car here by my building 26 Town View Drive, Wappingers Falls.Not alot of parking and you have to pay to park. We can split parking fee. Talk at winter gathering. You buy tickets at machines. You can look up parking map at metro north online. I'll take a ride down there today or tomorrow to check out parking situation or we can get a cab from here if I see parking really bad at 8:00am
