Greetings members, I have just learned that the Path train to Hoboken will not be running for 2 to 3 more weeks. This disruption is being blamed on Hurricane Sandy. One alternative is the ferry service, (http://www.nywaterway.com/ferryroutesschedules.aspx) which departs from West 39th Street in Manhattan, and goes to 14th Street in Hoboken. Another option is to take a bus (#126 I believe) from Port Authority to Hoboken (Path Station). You must purchase tickets at PA for the bus prior to getting on. Finally, you can take Path trains (http://www.panynj.gov/path/) from Manhattan to Pavonia/ Newport station in Jersey City. It's possible to walk from there to Hoboken.

 

For the intrepid members of Wired NY and ArtForward who attend, this will be our first ever tour of Hoboken, New Jersey, USA. Artists in the mile-square city are opening their workspaces for people to see the creative process in real time. We will also stop in at a couple of galleries. I have ordered perfect weather for our adventure, thank you very much.

 

The Cultural Affairs Dept says: "As diverse as the art itself, the tour’s popularity draws artists far beyond the banks of Hoboken. You will see art in many forms, representing an exciting variety of mediums. Visitors will have a chance to meet the artists, photographers, sculptors and artisans, and witness the creative process at work. Even poets, musicians and performance artists will be on hand to make your day a memorable one."

If you are lost, or can't find the group, you can text me at[masked]-8453.

    Pretty good. Lots of healthy walking and stair-climbing!

    Greetings. The open studios event is definitely happening. The map has been published. Those artists who had spaces damaged have been moved to city hall, or they will have to wait until next year. There may not be a shuttle bus provided, but we will manage. I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

    I'm not sure what I'll do - I may bring my bike, take the PATH to Jersey City then ride into Hoboken....but that's ambitious :)

    I'm no expert, but it seems the 126 bus might be an option. I used to use it to get to Weehawken and the map indicates it goes to Hoboken. Of course it will be crowded, but maybe doable on Sunday.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
