Evening Light At Untermyer Gardens
PLEASE NOTE: THIS MEETUP HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE WEATHER FORECAST. RAINDATE IS NOW SATURDAY 2ND JUNE. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you can't make the new date please update your RSVP. Thanks ________________________________________________________________________' We will meet near the clock at Grand Central Station at 3:00 pm and catch the 3:20 Metro-North Hudson Line Train to Yonkers. Train tickets are $8.25 - Reduced Fare $5.50 Outside the Yonkers Station at 4:15 pm we can catch the No. 6 Bus right to the gardens arriving at 4:30 pm You can use your regular "Metrocard" on the bus or exact change with coins. (no bills) Entrance to the Gardens is free of charge. Untermyer Park is on a hillside above the Hudson River and features a "Grecian garden" (actually a Persian Paradise garden), a small Grecian-style amphitheater, a classical pavilion, pergola, statuary, a rock and water feature called the "Temple of Love" and a "Vista" staircase. To the west, the park has views of the Hudson River and the Palisades. I am told that the garden is less crowded early in the day or later in the afternoon, hence our late in the day visit. However, the garden should be most photogenic in the late afternoon light. Once at the Untermyer Park we can shoot 'till 7:00 pm which will be more than enough time then return to Manhattan on the 7:23 bus. The train will leave at 8:02 getting us back to GTC/Manhattan at 8:40 pm. ____________________________________________________ Photography for personal use is allowed; no drones are allowed and shooting models is frowned upon. Professional photography requires a permit from the city of Yonkers. I can find no rules concerning tripods so assume that their use is perfectly fine. Avoid restricting the movement of others with them and as usual, remember that the use of tripods is strictly at the risk of the user. Please be on time. Give yourselves the extra time to travel in case of weekend subway issues. Please do not send private meetup messages. Leave all your questions and comments on this event page before the meetup begins. There are restrooms at the visitors center but I cannot guarantee that they will be open. Dress appropriately for the weather. Pack whatever gear you need. Don’t forget your charged batteries and empty memory cards. Brings snacks & water, no food or beverage is available in the gardens. Details of this event may be added or changed at any time, so please check in periodically on this page. ____________________________________________________ Disclaimer: Participation in these events requires that you assume all risks associated with these activities and that the Organizers, Co-Organizers and, Event Hosts are in no way liable for any tickets/summons, loss, theft, damage or injury as a result of your participation.
