What we're about

For a Full List of Events: www.NewYorKSocialNetwork.com

No matter the season, there are always things to do. A snowy hike or a stunning spring walk -- we have breathtaking trips for you to enjoy. You can also join us at some great events in the city including Happy Hours and Scavenger Hunts.

We have been doing this for over 17 years and we are excited to have you! This group is open to all but you’ll find the majority of the groups are in their 20s to 40s.

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what many do... and you’ll walk away with new friends. You will always have a host to greet you and introduce you to other members at our events.

**Some events listed are run by other meetup partners. For a full list of New York Social Network’s events, see: www.NewYorKSocialNetwork.com (http://www.newyorksocialnetwork.com)
