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)

Since 2004 The New York Social Network has been bringing people together in thousands of ways. Last March when everything shut down, things did not look good for a social networking organization that averaged over 18 in-person events each week.

Today we are still here because of the amazing members that we have. Some have been with us for years and others are just starting and others have registered but never been out (or online).

Join NYSN founder Dave Cervini for this special night for anyone who is new to the group or has never been out before. (long time members are invited too in case you want to share your experiences).

So as we get ready to tackle Spring and Summer of 2021, why not make a resolution to make the best of what we are going through with others who are looking for the same thing you are. Dave will talk a little about the group, why we do what we do, and what we have planned for the coming year.

What to expect:
Register and we will send you the zoom meeting info.
Dave will be on hand to welcome you, introduce you to others, and talk about NYSN. (don’t worry this is not a formal presentation)
Dave will also be open to answering any questions you have or take suggestions for future events.
The chat should last for about an hour.

90% of those signing in will be joining us for the first time so don’t feel weird. If you feel uncomfortable and just want to listen you can not turn on your video.
