Let's walk around dtLA and take photos

A revision for this meetup. Originally, I'd planned to walk all over town (kind of like my mind is stronger than my body actually is type thing). Well, due to the fact that I can only walk for a short distances on flat surfaces, this is the route I've planned from W. 5th (meeting at Pershing Sq. to just past W. 1st at Grand Park). Along the way there is Pershing Square Park - http://www.laparks.org/pershingsquare/index.html#location (at the meetup point with parking beneath the park), Grand Central Market - http://www.grandcentralmarket.com/visit, Angel's Flight - http://angelsflight.org/, mural in "The Living Rock" at Civic Center Red Line Station - https://plus.google.com/112910415304341353611/about?gl=us&hl=en and this route cuts through LA's Civic Center, so there are the court & other buildings.

The meetup will last from around 11:45 am (note the change of time) to approximately 2:45 pm. If anyone wants to leave earlier or stay later, that's fine. We will wait at Pershing Square Red Line Station for about a 1/2 hour. We will meet on the corner of S. Hill St and W. 5th St by the stairs at the entrance to Pershing Square Park. I may or may not have my purple backpack. But, a few of you know me , and I'm quite recognizable by my photo on the LA Street Photography site.  

Thank you to Larry Abellera for his suggestion to make it a shorter walk than I originally planned, due to my disabilities.

For those who are driving, parking at Union Station and taking the RedLine to Pershing Square (a day pass is $5) might be more convenient. I don't know how much parking costs downtown, but from what I've seen it's not cheap. Here's the link for public transportation information - www.metro.net and the cost of getting around by bus/train. I don't know how much it is, but you can also park at the GoldLine Sierra Madre Villa Station in Pasadena, depending on which direction your coming from. The phone number to call for metro information is 1-323-GO-METRO or you can get metro info on metro.net. 

If you have any questions, email me at [masked] or call me. My home phone is[masked] <--- Please use this number first. My cell phone is[masked]-4898.

      Anytime Brewster. I want to plan another one in November. This time I think it will be in Hollywood either on Hollywood or Sunset Blvd or both. Just have to see how I feel.

    Thank you everyone for making this meetup what it was - fun and quite interesting. I'm so happy we took tons of photos. I will post mine tomorrow when I get a chance to revise them. I hope I checked everyone to the right who was there. As I said, my mind is not the greatest with names. I hope we can do this again sometime soon. I really enjoy being an event organizer.

    • Michelle

      Okay Tom. Pershing Square is only two stops after Union Station on the RedLine. See you on Sunday. It will be good to see you again.

    Sorry I cannot make it, spending 2 hours plus each way on a bus is not good for me.

    October 14, 2013

    • Michelle

      I understand David, since I take public transportation. It's sometimes quite difficult to get to a meetup on the weekend when the travel time is quite long. Hope to see you at another meetup.

      October 15, 2013

  • Susan L.

    Sorry, can't make it now on Sunday due to an afternoon commitment Next time...

    October 15, 2013

    • Michelle

      Sorry to hear that Susan. Have a good Sunday. Hope to see you at another meetup.

      October 15, 2013

  • Susan L.

    I believe parking under Pershing Square is $9. And there are other lots around Pershing Square less than that on Sunday.

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Michelle

      Thank you Susan. I don't drive, so I don't know parking rates or much about parking. Looking forward to seeing you on the 20th. P.S. - your photos are amazing!

      October 11, 2013

  • Karen

    Sorry I won't be able to make it. I have to go out of town on that day to visit family.

    October 7, 2013

    • Michelle

      Have a good visit Karen. See you at another meetup.

    Don't know where my mind was at when I wrote this meetup. The
    Central Library isn't open on Sunday, but from Pershing Square, we can walk down to the Civic Center and then head over to the Park. Or we can head down to Broadway and take photos there. By the 20th, I'll have a more definite route.

    Had no trouble RSVP-ing or posting this comment.

  • Michelle

    I just received an email from one of the meetup members who said he was having trouble with leaving comments and the rsvp. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, please let me know and I'll contact Chris or another member to figure out what's wrong. Thanks for everyone who's rsvp'd so far.

  • Rocky V.

    Michelle, why is the RSVP closed and will only open the day before?

    September 17, 2013

    • Michelle

      I goofed. I'll change that now.

      September 17, 2013

    • Michelle

      Thanks...
