1000 5th Avenue, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
My husband is going to be doing on-site maintenance for his former employer and is bringing me along!
On the weekend of September 7, my husband was contracted to do some on-site work for his former employer and since we had extra airfare points that we didn't need for our honeymoon next February, I decided to tag along.

Since he'll be working most of the time, I'll be completely at my leisure to wander through and around my favorite former hangouts, but I'll confess that it would be great to see some of you again.

Is there anyone who'll be in town and can meetup on September 7? What's best for you, afternoon or evening? One or two things I'd like to do is to see the Met or MoMA (because I've never been, not even in the 9 years I lived in NYC), hang out in Central Park, get some soul food, and/or sing some karaoke.

ETA: Confirmed! I've decided that I'd like to start at the Met with a visit to the The Roof Garden Commission and then wander down for about two or three hours. Afterwards, a hot dog or other snacks in Central Park would be nice, and then we'll all think about where we'd want to go for dinner or I may decide to call it just before dinner so I can go and play Magic somewhere.

I have just come into a surfeit of free time, and a daytime museum trip would be in order!

I'm coming back into town during the day but would be up for something in the evening.

Just noticed this has gone from proposed to confirmed now that I'm back in my laptop instead of in phone-internet-only travel mode. TrishaLynn, you should probably send out an update MeMail, editing the main post doesn't bump the thread up in the Recent Activity page.

Made it through DragonCon without catching this year's con crud, so I'm in for the meetup.

I'm also busy in the afternoon, but will be free around 5pm. If'n you decide to extend in to the evening, let us know!

So, where should we aim to meet? The front steps of the Met on 5th Ave look cosy.

Front steps is fine. I'll be wearing a black hoodie, a brown T-shirt & jeans, black hair in a ponytail or a bun, carrying a blue/black backpack. Will update thread with precise location when I get there tomorrow.

Have fun! I am upstate for the weekend. If you want to do something during the week, let me know.

Alas, we are leaving Sunday night. It's a very quick visit for me.

Heading into the city now - I'm in turquoise jeans & a red top.

When you get to the entrance (finally) through the conduction, you'll see a sign near the top of the stairs that says Open Late Tonight. I'm standing under it, no hoodie.

We're inside now, on the roof.

We're wandering amongst the Impressionist paintings now.

Taking another rest, this time near the American Art wing. The furniture in the English rooms made me want to sit down.

And that's time! Thanks to oh yeah & Megan for coming. I don't know how to walk in New York anymore :( so I'm taking my tired butt back to the dorm where we're staying.

We have scattered, hope you have a nice rest of your visit, TrishaLynn.

It was nice meeting you Trisha! The fancy blue canopy bed has made me desperate for a nap.
