What we're about

SEE THE FULL EVENT SCHEDULE HERE (https://www.meetup.com/I-love-Manhattan-things-to-do/events/upcoming)

This is a a group for people who live and work In NY and the surrounding area, but who recognize we are in one of the greatest metropolitan areas in the world. It's for people who are creatures of the city, with all its diversity, possibilities, opportunities, and excitement. To be sure, we will make excursions into the city--and that includes Queens and Brooklyn as well as Manhattan...and let's not forget the Bronx and Staten Island as well. However, we will get together here on Long Island too, in the interest of promoting convenience and encouraging inclusion by people whose budgets may not allow them to take trips to the city as frequently as they'd like. The point of this group is as much to allow meeting, forming friendships, and having fellowship with others whose hearts belong in the city, as it is to take trips into the city for all that it offers.

Some of the event types we offer are : Speed Dating, Museums, bowling, pool, golf, bingo, shows, rock climbing, mingles and more.

This group is NOT about pick-up or seduction techniques, or wingman tactics.

Warm regards,
