Location image of event venue


Meet at Port Authority NJ Transit Bus 126 Platform/Stop. Bus tickets in hand!

OK: new info thanks to Eugene
"FYI The Gate at Port Authority Bus Terminal is 204 for regular NJT 126 service and 205 for NJT 126L service. For our group's purposes either will work because both stop at 19th & Willow Street."

If we don't all fit on one bus we may need both stops.

Bus fare $3:50 (exact fare needed on the bus back, best to buy before boarding) MUST Buy tickets before boarding bus going. You can use the NJ Transit phone app too.

We'll take a very short trip on the Bus # 126 at 7:00 pm to Willow Ave at 19th St and walk down to the waterfront and find the best spot at Lincoln Harbor to shoot.

The sunset is at 07:55 pm and the moonrise at 8:20 pm which will show a little later when it gets above the buildings.

Afterwards, we can visit (very nearby) Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for snacks and beverages before finding a bus back to Manhattan.
