Bahamut Posted July 1, 2008 Report Share Posted July 1, 2008 August 2nd NYC Meetup @ Coney Island! Meeting Place: Not Coney Island and not at the original Nathan's ( http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Nathan's+Coney+Island++New+York,+NY&ie=UTF8&ll=40.575532,-73.981719&spn=0.015255,0.026779&z=15&iwloc=C ) Meeting time: Noon? Instructions: For those coming from Long Island and via LIRR, the best way to get to Coney Island, your best bet is making it to the Flatbush Ave. stop on the LIRR (a transfer may be necessary at Jamaica). From here, you can take a number of subways to get to Coney Island, notably the N and Q both end there, and I think both the B & D stop there as well. For those coming from elsewhere, such as New Jersey or Westchester County, your best public transportation option is to get into Port Authority/Penn Station/Grand Central, and then make your way to the N or Q train towards downtown (at Grand Central you would need to take the S to get to them, but for the two former locations you can board the N or Q right from those places). Stuff to do: I've never really been inside of Coney Island myself, so it'll be a first for me. It does feature amusement park rides such as a rollercoaster and ferris wheel, so there should be plenty to do. I'm not sure how much it will cost, but I'd bring at least $50 for insurance (hopefully the expenditures for the day will be less). If someone wants to host a sleepover, they should chime in since that'd be a nice bonus. If someone knows of places to go around the area, also mention them! (i.e. dinner or something else in the night. Being that it's Saturday in the city, there has got to be other things going on if we happen to exhaust stuff to do in Coney Island) Definites Bahamut PassivePretentiousness José the Bronx Rican Tentatives Atmuh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
