What we're about

Hello 1001ers I thought it would be really fun to put together a list of 1001 really special "NYC" only activities that are true to the character of this city. Attending 1001 meetups would take a minimum of 4 years so i don't expect that any single person (including myself) would be able to get through the entire list, but nonetheless, it would be a fascinating list to look at!

This group is about getting out and enjoying this beautiful city we all share. Our task is to get there and make a few friends along the way!

Our group has a strict ANTI-FLAKE POLICY for you RSVP-aholics (2 No Shows=bye bye) This policy is mandatory to keep our group strong!
