There will be a group of us taking pictures in the NYC area on the next 2 Saturdays.
The first outing will be Saturday, March 8th, at Coney Island.
We will meet at the entrance of the New York Aquarium at 9:00am.
The aquarium entrance is located at the corner of Surf Avenue and West 8th Street.
You can park all day in the Aquarium parking lot for ~$10 or you can sometimes find
free parking across the street.
I am picking Alan up at Penn Station and have room for one or two more. Call or PM me if you need a ride.
If you get there later in the day, just call my cell (1-917-940-7510) to meet up.
The next picture taking outing will be to Passaic County, New Jersey on Saturday, March 15th. Specifically, we will meet at the Passaic (Great) Falls in Paterson in the morning. We can then go to the Long Pond Ironworks and the Ringwood Manor if time permits.
The Passaic (Great) Falls are in Paterson, NJ. The adjacent area has a few interesting
places to shoot besides the falls. We could stay in this area in the morning and move to the Ringwood area in the afternoon. The Long Pond Iron Works is near Ringwood, and there are several manors in Ringwood including the Ringwood Manor.
Paterson is about a 40 minute drive from Manhattan.
We can meet at the parking lot in Overlook Park (72 McBride Avenue Ext, Paterson,
New Jersey) at 9:00am.
I have room in my car for 2 additional people from Manhattan if you need a ride.
George Tice is known for his photos of Paterson and the Great Falls if you want
to see examples of what we will be shooting.
The Long Pond Iron Works was a foundry that was used in the 1700's through the
Civil War. There are ruins of the original foundry and old buildings throughout
The Manors are open to the public and have interesting landscapes and gardens.
