    OK, I will sign up to help organize this event.
    Specifics will be published once they are known

    Meanwhile please PM me with suggestions.
    Date is May 4.
    Let's get a list of those interested going on this thread.
    Bring cameras prints SOs and an appetite.

    I will be in NY in July starting the 17th . If someone wants to organize a meet on Friday late day on the 18th. I will be more than happy to attend and spill my guts out on Photography.

    Guy's offer is too good to pass up. Maybe if we don't all end up hating each other in May, we can do a GetDPI E.C. meeting redux.

    Ideas for a shoot on May 4 (weather permitting)
    1. Chinatown and the Brooklyn Bridge
    2. Brooklyn Heights and the Promenade (can include the Brooklyn Bridge)
    3. Wall Street on its day off and ground zero
    others...
    Preferences anyone?
    thanks

    May 4 is a problem for me, but July 18 with Guy sounds great.

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4

    After a discussion with Jack last night . GetDPI forums would like to sponsor these and Jack and i would love to participate when we can . We would like to call them something like GetDPI Day Meets and they would be free ( unless we have to travel). This would be a nice chance to meet and spend some time with us and for us a great opportunity to help you with your photography and just get to know folks that love this place. We will think about it more and stuff but thought this maybe of interest to forum members. That is if you want us involved also. Still casual and nothing formal but a lot of fun. Our big issue is organization which we do not have time for since the workshops require a lot of time to setup .

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4

    We are coming up on May 4 real soon now, so I thought I would move a step toward finalizing things.
    Suggested itinerary:
    10:00 (optional) All those interested may visit BH at 33rd and Ninth Ave http://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/jsp/area_map.jsp
    Make sure that if you go there, you leave in ample time to get to lunch in Brooklyn. Allow 30-40 minutes for the trip by subway or by car. This limits your exposure to temptation
    12:00 Meet at the Heights Cafe in Brooklyn Heights for lunch at noon http://www.heightscafeny.com/home.html
    ~14:00 Brooklyn Heights, Promenade, and Brooklyn Bridge shoot
    when we are done, possibly a drink at a convenient watering hole

    Currently the weather forecast is for Sun and some clouds with a high of 60, but you know how reliable these forecasts are this far out.

    How does that sound?
    Any changes?
    How many reservations shall I make?
    thanks

    I am planning to be there. Your itinerary is fine with me. I 'll volunteer to be the designated wallet holder while everyone is in B&H if you like.

    Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge Overpasses) and the Fulton Landing is a great area for bridge shots, a short walk from the heights promenade and a hip new hood, lots of cafes.

    sorry for the twerpy acronym, but it is NY

    No worries, I almost went for Peter Luger's, but thought that was not a real good shooting location compared to the Heights (recently named DUMBO by the acronym fashion police)

    July 17th I will be there for 12 days but the 17th is best for me i can spend all day with everyone. I personally would enjoy that very much to meet all my NY friends and anyone else that wants to come in.

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4

    I am no longer able to attend. Rats! I was really looking forward to it. We just uncovered tickets we bought months ago for The Prairie Home Companion on the 3rd. There's no way I can make the 7 hour drive from Maine + the 50 min. train from Southern CT on Sunday. I certainly hope to make the next meeting when Guy is in the city.

    Folks,
    With two bailing due to conflicts, would it be better to forego this one and shoot for July 17?

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4

    Bob,
    Postponing until July would be much better for me. I have a fellow forum member visiting and while both a trip to B&H and time out shooting are exactly what we had already planned this takes away the time pressures we would have been under with a larger group.

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4 - postponed

    Well folks,
    Based on the idea of maximizing the size of the gathering, how about we skip May 4 and aim at July 18 which I think is the date Guy suggested.
    I will ask him to confirm the date and will get back to you all.
    thanks

    Guy,
    Yeah, especially since I was planning to be in the neighborhood. But next time after we e-schedule for July, if we get a low turnout just repeat the following line to yourself as I am doing now.

    Bob,
    I wasn't canceling if you were still coming to NY. I was just unsuccessfully tying to say that if I had to chose July was better. If you will still be in NY, happy to meet up. Otherwise I will see you a few days later in San Juan!

    Zabars does have good chopped liver

    To which date are you referring?

    Bob - if you are going to be in NY on the 4th I am still available to meet. Don't want you to make a special trip, though.

    Bob is still going to be in town so there will be some sort of East Coast meet up. Looking to do bfast and a stroll in the Park on Saturday AM but alternates are still being batted around. Anyone that couldn't do the original Sunday meeting but would like to get together on Saturday AM, please speak up! Friday evening is still up for discussion and even Sunday AM is not completely dead.

    Re: East Coast Photographers Meet May 4

    I am available Saturday until the late afternoon, maybe Friday night, I expect to be still recovering just a bit from my return flight from Asia.
    I would love to get together, so if you can work out a time and a place Saturday I will be there.
    Terry and Helen, could you organize the meet since I am at a time zone disadvantage until I return.
    If it is Saturday, maybe start a new thread containing the proper date
