Would love to get there and sounds like this would be a great opportunity to meet-up with another pentaxian... but I'll be leaving NYC right as you're arriving. Hope your travels are safe and trouble free. Another snow storm expected to pass thru on the 16th. Looking forward to your shots.

Prime how much notice you need? Atleast 1-2 days in advanced? Looking at weather, im hoping just to get there. I fly in tomorrow so i will see what happens. Won't be able to go on 16th so the 17th would be the earliest. I think maybe later in week so we can see what the weather can do. Let me know whats good for you.

I think one day in advance should be enough for me, I'm pretty available this week. I hope you can get in okay tomorrow.

Jason and other members. I'm gonna set up Friday the 19th as a firm date. Looking at weather it says partly cloudy with a high of 40. So should be a pretty decent day to go. Hope other members can make it. I will not have a cell phone in new york so we need to set up a meeting place and time. maybe 9:45 am at the gate??

Let me know whom all is interested. Hope to meet a couple of people.

Thanks

Steve

Central Park Zoo is small, quaint by New York standards but well worth a visit when in Central Park.
It's great, especially for small kids.

The Bronx Zoo is New York City's world-class zoo: Bronx Zoo

I got all tied up yesterday helping my girlfriend's uncle with his new Phase One that was causing him all sorts of grief. I had been trying to convince him to hold off until the Pentax 645 comes out but oh, well. Anyway, sorry that you were alone yesterday, Steve. :/ I hope you'll come back to town again and we can get a decent contingent together.
