    There was a coffee mug left on the bus, it's silver with a faux-leather middle insulator piece (black). Let me know if it's yours.

    Tom has graciously put together a list of photo exhibits you can visit in the city within a few block area in Chelsea. If you’re going to be in the city and you want to see some inspiring exhibits, check out Tom’s list (I’ve uploaded it to the site at the address below)

    Brian, I'll take the ticket to NY. Let me know how to make the payment.
    Thank you!
    PS: Also, I accidentally sent this message to the entire group list...please do not forward, unless you feel it should be.

    Is there anymore room available on the bus. I need 2 seats...?

    October 10, 2013

    • Brian

      Hi Barbara, there is potential for one open seat. are you interested in just one if that is an option?

      October 10, 2013

    • Barbara D.

      Brian... I have someone else who would like to so along also. She is checking on making that possible. I should know soon.

    Do the people going to the Expo have to walk/get a cab to the Winter Garden Theater to catch the bus home?

    July 25, 2013

    • Blake Z.

      Sorry, I hit return by mistake. To answer your question directly, yes, one should either walk or take a cab to the Winter Garden.

      July 25, 2013

    • Brian

      The bus company only allows us 1 pick up point, and we find most people have ventured out into the city at that point in the day. Cab fare from the Javits Center to Times Square is roughly $10. Others have collaborated in the past to reduce cab costs.

      July 25, 2013

  • Linda K.

    Is it a coach bus with bathroom facilities?

    July 20, 2013

    • Brian

      Yes. We also make a comfort stop on the way too the city.

  • Cammy S.

    I am going to also ask Michelle's question about children. My daughter is wanting to go now too. Lol!

    July 19, 2013

    • Brian

      Yes, no problems kids are a-okay for this trip.

  • Michelle H.

    I 'assume' it's ok to bring my 14 year old daughter? She's been dying to go, and is always my photo sidekick anyways...

    1 · July 17, 2013

    • Brian

      Yes a-okay. I brought my then 5-year old and 8-year-old on the 2011 bus trip for their first trip to the city.

  • Linh A.

    Hi Brian, in case of bad weather (hurricane, snow storm, etc.) will the bus company let us reschedule another day or refund our money? Reason I asked was my brother and his gf lost their money when we had the snow storm last year.

    July 17, 2013

    • Brian

      Hi Linh, unfortunately no. Once we send in our down payment (one month prior to the event), we are locked in. The bus company will only offer us a refund/reschedule if there is a weather emergency in which in the State officially declares the roads impassable. We had a snow storm two years ago and we all still went (and had a good time!)
