I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I see what you mean about street photography opportunities. Wherever it is next time, I'll make it assuming I'm in town!

I'd be game for a city meet-up sometime. I live on the Island.

I've always wanted to go find and shoot the remnants of the White Star terminal (of Titanic fame). Obviously it's on one of the piers...

I thought I missed it, but then I noticed it was called off. Well, in any case I think I need to check here more often. :)

I thought English was the default language here :p

For those that need a better idea than Times Square or are not aware of this event in New York City.

I went to last year's event at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for the first time and it was photographer fun! Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Cherry Blooms Festival (external link) This only happens once a year and easy to get to by subway.

Here are some of my snapshots from last year's event.

I believe its part of the Chelsea Piers complex. But maybe you'll find Kate Winslet playing golf there.:)

I was actually planning to take a trip to the botanical gardens later this when the weather gets better and I can get some extension tubes, but hey, why don't we hold a POTn meet there? The gardens idea, as well as John's idea for the boat trip in Long Island, sound fantastic. It looks like there are going to be plenty of meets when the sun is shinin' and the birds are chirpin'.

I'm also planning to revisit the Intrepid (the aircraft carrier along the west side highway) and the MoMA. If anyone has any other ideas of things to see in NYC, I'd like to hear about them. I'm going to have plenty of time over the summer. And once I attain my license in a few months (hopefully), I'll be making plenty of trips to the city with my glass.

I've gotten some great skyline and Statue of Liberty shots on the Circle Line Cruise that goes around Manhattan. It leaves from the same place as the Intrepid I believe. Next time I go I'm going to try to go around sunset and get some night/sun down shots.

Sweet, Rich! Thanks! That's the one.

I've always had a lot of fun just wandering the east village and shooting, but there's a lot of places to shoot in the city. The botanical gardens sounds like a really neat idea.

Good idea! Let's set that date, Sunday works best for me, but I see that the Taiko drums are on Saturday. I do have some company from out of town that weekend (actually a whole month) but I guess I'll have to drag them along, or ditch them.

Usually on Sundays I wander alone on the streets, taking pictures. Anyone who has their Sunday free and wish to tag along, just give me a holler. If you bike, even better, we can cover a lot of ground that way.

Dave, I think most would feel the same way if we talk Gaggiaese. :) So how do you tamp your grounds? N, S, E, W quadrant, with slight polishing and tapping to finish it off? 30 pounds pressure I presume? I hope you don't use the crema disc, that's cheating :)
