If we can make it there, we'll make it anywhere

New York, New York  

Kevin, LankyYankee, and I have been chatting on the forum about the Galaxy Zoo New York meetup, coming up this Saturday.

The current plan is that we will meet at the Housing Works bookstore/cafe at 2 PM on Saturday, February 7th. Housing Works is at 126 Crosby Street, near the intersection of Houston and Broadway. The nearest subway stops are Broadway-Lafayette on the B/D/F/V line and Bleecker St. on the 6.

An extra-exciting feature of Saturday’s meetup is that we’ll be chatting live with a simultaneous meetup of Zooites at Astrofest 2009 in London. Yay, our first transatlantic meetup!

Let me know, in the comments section here or the forum thread, if you’ll be able to come.  I’ll grab a table a few minutes before 2 PM. Look for me there, wearing a Johns Hopkins University t-shirt. This is what I look like:

See you there!

    See as many of you as possible either on the screen or in person. 😀

    Although I have paid over 35 visits to NYC mostly on business I have never attended any social function there. Visitors must not forget to have a leisurely stroll in Greenwich Village, pay visits to many great museums around Manhattan or try a musical in Broadway Theatre District. Happy NYC meet-up to all Zooites who are attending.

    Hey Jordan, I’m writing a story for IEEE Spectrum magazine about participatory space exploration. I live in NYC, and if you don’t mind, I’d like to stop by and meet some GZers in person.

    And I promise not to be too much of an interfering reporter.

  7. Kevin says :

    Sure, please do join us!

    Hi Josh,

    I just got your message – I’m sitting in the Housing Works bookstore now. We’d love to see you! Hopefully you’re on your way now, but if not, please come on by!
