Hi guys,

Sorry about vanishing, had four overnight guests yesterday.  Happy to meet wherever, can still host.  I think monstermonster and her boyfriend are planning to meet up here, but I can redirect them.  I really thought it would be raining, but it looks like it's going to be beautiful!

I'm just leaving the upper west side. Should I go to the atrium or the park?

Anyone who's up for a June meetup in Prospect Park, fill out the poll with dates you're available: http://doodle.com/poll/dqux983n9s7hpv6x

The people have spoken! Saturday 18th in Prospect Park. I didn't say this would be a hike, but I thought it. If anyone has a problem with that, speak up.

Time: 2 PM?

Can't make the 18th, but know someone moving to the city soon--if anyone has a lead on a roommate/apartment opening, PM me!

So you mean it's far away?  Or we'll be compelled to hike when we get there?  Have a friend in town that weekend but am going to try to make it.  It's also my unspeakable birthday :(

Pregnant ladies coming from the Bronx will not need to hike around in the summer if they so choose. We did a hike there last time, but we can also chill in the grass if people want.

Last time we met at Grand Army Plaza.  That seemed to work well and won't involve too much walking to get to a grassy area.

Show up at 2 PM on the 18th at Grand Army Plaza! If you get there late, either PM me or post on this thread asking where people have gathered.

I would love to go to a meet-up, curious to see the faces of MMM in Brooklyn. DH and I are in Ridgewood. Have a wedding back in the Midwest on the 18th, but I will be stalking the thread for the next one.

Time to think about July.  As a random visitor from overseas, I might not be able to dictate when to meet but a good day for me would be Saturday July 23rd.   Also possible, but on weekdays are July 22nd or the first few days of August.

Would this work for anyone?  :)

Hi NYC mustachians! My husband and I will be moving to NYC in October. I'd appreciate any advice you have to give about where to live and how to make it work there!

I created a thread here if you want to weigh in without cluttering up this thread.

I'm a new forum member, but I'd try to come to an NYC meetup any of those days. Very much want to meet some people aiming for early financial independence in this city!

Looks like there might be a thunder storm tomorrow afternoon.

Let's have the IBM atrium (E 56th and Madison) be our back-up in case of rain.

Since I'm new but still hoping to come--is it going to be easy to recognize the meetup? Anything I should look for, assuming I make it there?

edit: VV ha, thanks, that would do it.
