Subway art meetup?

Sat October 19 at 2:00 PM, Kosciuszko St J train stop
1136 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
I was so slow on getting this together that my old thread got archived, oops. Let's on meet at 2 at Kosciuszko on the J train on Saturday, October 19, and take pictures of some subway art. If we make it all the way out to Jamaica we can get pupusas.
I will cancel if there's rain. If people strongly prefer another day, I will change this but wanted to set an actual date.

Woohoo! Small chance I’ll have to back out because of interview season, but otherwise I’m excited!

I may have another guest or two if I can go! Need to check the paper calendar. And I am lazy at the moment.

Yay! Can totally reschedule to accommodate y'all as needed but I put this in since it's the earliest date I can realistically do.

I'm back! And I should be able to make this.

Changed to making it, and added another guest, another friend may enjoy this as well!

I should be around that weekend, and this sounds fun!

Still planning to do this (unless there are service changes that will prohibit it; I'll update as soon as I can if that's the case). Meet at 2 on the platform and get ready to ride east, getting off at each stop to shoot photos.

Looks like trains are running fine. Hope to see you on the Jamaica-bound Kosciuszko platform at 2 on Saturday.

OK, so we are meeting up on the platform? Suburbanites here, we usually drive into the area.

I’m excited!

kellyblah, I’m also coming in from Long Island (from Mineola). I’d be happy to coordinate travel with y’all.

I think we may be taking the LIRR, especially if we're heading back to Jamaica, we'll be from Ronkonkoma though. I'll look at time and send you my cell!

A friend is leaving early, so my schedule this weekend got shifted around. I'm going to try to make this, but I'm having to downgrade myself to maybe. If it all works out, I'll see you tomorrow.

Will text you in the morning, kellyblah!
posted by ocherdraco at 8:24 PM on October 18

See y'all soon! Yes, platform, but if it would be better to meet somewhere else I can try to coordinate.
posted by ferret branca at 10:18 PM on October 18

If you would like to, say, take the LIRR to East NY and meet at Bway Junction and go east from there we can do that, just let me know and I can update.

And of course feel free to part ways with me at Jamaica at the end!
posted by ferret branca at 10:20 PM on October 18

Training to Jamaica and then taking the J to meet you at Kosciuszko seems to be our best bet! Especially since training to East New York requires a transfer at Jamaica anyway.
posted by ocherdraco at 5:36 AM on October 19

See you then!
posted by ferret branca at 7:05 AM on October 19

See you at 2pm on the eastbound side of Kosciuszko station!

We may be a couple minutes late, just got to 121st street, another dozen to go!
posted by kellyblah at 10:45 AM on October 19

On my way, see you all soon!

I am here! There’s a train in 12 minutes. I’m going to plan to catch that and keep updating the thread so people can catch up!
posted by ferret branca at 10:58 AM on October 19

Train in 3 minutes, going to take it to the next stop, Gates, until the subsequent train in 12. Will continue to update. (Just afraid if I wait it will take me too long to get to Jamaica.)
posted by ferret branca at 11:09 AM on October 19

We'll get off at gates to wait
posted by kellyblah at 11:09 AM on October 19

I think I’ve got everyone. Moving merrily east.

Thanks for coming, everyone!
