Winter Sunrise at Exchange Place

Exchange Place PATH terminal in front of Katyn Memorial statue

UPDATED 1/16/2019 -- PLEASE READ DETAILS CAREFULLY!! Photo Minions!! How passionate are you when it comes to your photography? Are you willing to come out early on a cold, winter morning to capture a sunrise? Let's start 2019 with a sunrise meetup at Exchange Place; weather permitting. We will meet at 6:30am sharp by the Katyn Memorial statue (see photo). It stands between the Exchange Place PATH Station and a Starbucks. Sunrise will be approximately 7:16am. The map on this page looks correct but just in case, please use the Google Maps app directly. We will then move towards the water and prep for the sunrise. *** IMPORTANT *** If you are planning to take the PATH to Exchange Place from NYC, the World Trade Center station WILL NOT be open. Please download the "RidePATH" app (available for both iOS and Android) for alternative routes to Exchange Place, or visit the PATH's website: http://www.panynj.gov/path/full-schedules.cfm *** WARNING *** PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE PROPERLY DRESSED FOR THIS EVENT!! THE WEATHER WILL MOST LIKELY BE VERY, VERY COLD, ESPECIALLY BY THE WATER!!!!!! *** TIPS *** The night before the sunrise meetup: - Charge your batteries and empty your memory cards. - Check Google Maps on Exchange Place. Although we will mostly be together by the water, see if you can find a spot that you may be interested to shoot from to get a different perspective. - Get your gear ready. Make sure your lenses are clean. Pack your batteries, memory cards, camera and whatever else you need, but don't overstuff your bag. You don't want to hurt your back. - Lay out your clothes -- from your underpants and thermals to your coat and shoes. That way you can get up, get dressed, get your gear and get out of the house. *** NOTES *** - PLEASE BE ON TIME! THE SUN WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU!!... :P - Allow yourself enough travel time and check with the MTA https://new.mta.info/ for any bus or subway updates.

Washington Heights, The High Bridge and the Morris-Jumel Mansion

Entrance to 168th Street Subway Station (A and 1 lines) SE Corner

Recently I've been taking you off into the wild blue yonder upstate and it's time to come home to the city, let's do Manhattan for a change! We'll meet at 11:30 am January 26th near the 168th Street Subway on the A & C line. On the South East corner of 168th and St. Nicholas Avenue between the subway exit and subway elevator in front of the Columbia University Medical Science Building. We'll walk the gritty uptown city streets down to the Morris-Jumel Mansion where we can shoot the mansion which is Manhattan's oldest house and the nearby photogenic Jumel Terrace. From there we'll make our way to the area along the Harlem River from around 155th Street to the High Bridge/Park. This area is mainly recreational but it provides an interesting look at the neighborhood, views of the Harlem River and the Bronx as well as a close up visit to High Bridge and the Water Tower. At the High Bridge which was closed for many years but recently renovated and reopened, we can cross over to the Bronx and back and enjoy the views of the Harlem River from on high! Afterward, we will cross the park again past the Water Tower and make our way uptown on St. Nicholas to end up, finally, for a late lunch (or early dinner) at Casa Del Mofongo between 182nd and 183rd! Lunch is optional and "Dutch" of course! See here for a rough map of the area and the walk: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?msa=0&ll=40.8435011374507%2C-73.92859786616089&spn=0.018505%2C0.038495&iwloc=1476251229011218323&mid=1-yyt17khtMhl8myym4F3DbSSWcI&z=16 I hope many of you will brave the winter weather and look forward to seeing you there. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- IT"S WINTER: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE PROPERLY DRESSED FOR THE WALK!
