thanks @chatche.
I look forward to joining the next one!
wknds are typically tougher for me - any chance of weekday evening meetups?

Weekday meet-up is a good idea. We should do that for the next one.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow :)

Hi all, won't be able to make it as planned. In full support of a weekday meetup somewhere in Manhattan. Look forward to meeting you all then.

We've moved to the tables by the escalators and black cloth.

Dear All - Hope NYC meetup this wknd was awesome.

Since I am relatively new to MMM forums, I might be suggesting something that is not workable so do let me know if that is the case.

1. Forward Meetup Calendar - do you think we should set up a forward meetup calendar, for eg something like last Thursday of every month or whatever works. For me personally, having a forward calendar ensures I dont plan something else that evening.

2. Standard Location - Is there a standard location where you always meet? If not, should we set up a standard location that always works (even in the NYC winter).

I would love to know date of next meetup (for Feb) -so that I can block my calendar soon.

Thanks so much
Rainas

I'm open to a monthly recurring thing. Not sure about which day would be best. In the spring / summer it is really nice to meet in the park on a Sat or Sun. But mixing in some weekdays would allow people to attend that are busy on weekends.

For location we have often met at one of the atriums on madison and 56th (IBM or Sony). Maybe that could be a monthly spot, then we still plan hikes or picnics in the park when the weather is nice.

How about Thurs Feb 23rd for the next meetup?

Meet at the Sony atrium at 6pm. That too early? 7pm?

I'm usually in work until 5:30 or 6. I can make a 6 P.M. meetup, just not on time :)

And apologies for not being there for the last one -- family business!

I can make 6pm at the atrium. If most people are coming from Brooklyn or NJ, then Brookfield Place remains a good option. Looking forward to warmer weather and outdoor meetups.

February 22 is fine with me at the Sony Atrium. February 23 is also okay.

Can we make a Doodle with some possible dates/times? I notice that when NYC meetups here are considered, it's through a bunch of forum posts which isn't the most efficient way of coordinating. Is there a listserv that we can create? Someone with more expertise in that than I might chime in.

Doodle is a good idea. I created one with a bunch of mid-week dates.

Please fill it out if you are interested in attending the next meetup.
http://doodle.com/poll/hwzudxgxgm2fktr7

I created a listserv (google group) a while back. We have 24 members however, it is just me posting when the next meetup is. Benefit of planning meetups here on the forum is that new people can easily find and participate.

@stevef941

I'll bring my mustache sign to put on the table, but it shouldn't be too hard to find us.

Also, I see the atrium is now called the Plaza Public Arcade on google
Address is 550 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10022

Yes! Great to meet some new faces and good conversations all around :)

I'm off to New Zealand for a few weeks so the next meet-up I'll be at will hopefully be in warmer weather in the park :P

Hello All,

I'm new to the site and wondering if there is a NYC meetup group.  If so, how do I find it on meetup.com?

Thanks,

Hi All - do we have a MMM regroup in April?
Should we start looking at dates if not scheduled yet?
Looking forward to it.

On the /r/financialindepence subreddit, a group is organizing a NYC area meetup on Monday 4/10 at 7pm.

https://www.reddit.com/r/financialindependence/comments/60jltc/any_nyc_fi_fire_meetups/

I don't know the organizers and won't be able to go, but just thought I'd forward the information.

Woah, looks like a lot of interest on that reddit thread :)

I'm going to attend that one. Maybe we merge our usual meetup with that one for April?

Hi! I live in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn and I would love to meet some other MMM New Yorkers. Are we thinking April 26th for a possible meet up? Does this convo ever transfer to email?

@pfo: Click "notify" at the top and you can get email notifications when someone posts to the thread. Formatting ain't the greatest though :P

If Apr 26 works for most people I say we meet at Brookfield place again. Seems to be a good "middle" location.

Hey! So I'm one of the organizers of the Meetup. We had an issue with the account so was unable to really add any one before we got it sorted out.

The first Meetup went well and will continue to do them the first Monday of every month.

You can find the info here: https://www.meetup.com/NYC-FI-RE-meetup/events/239213815/

Also - the cap doesn't matter in terms of capacity but mostly for accommodations (chairs, snacks etc) so assumign we aren't expecting 200+ we should be fine!

Patrick, thanks for looping us in. Looking forward to attending the next one :)

26th seems to work well for most. Let's make it official!

Wed Apr 26th @ 7pm, Brookfield place.

Meet in the atrium at the tables opposite the steps. I'll bring my usual mustache sign.
