kgo6050 - use www.hopstop.com. You put in start and finish addresses and what type of transportation (subway or bus) and it gives step-by-step directions, even pictures of the street outside the station to show you which way to walk if, like me, you're disoriented when you come aboveground. It's even compatible with a PDA like a BlackBerry.

Thanks Caecilia, that website is sooo helpful. I'm always confused once I actually come out of the station, then I call my boyfriend freaking out. He's going to love this site:-)

Hmmm...around Washington Square Park there's La Lanternia, though 'cozy' can quickly become 'crowded'...Caffe Reggio is right nearby...there's also the park itself, should the weather be pleasant. If anyone's up for Polish/Russian food along with their coffee there's Veselka a bit more on the East side, along with a dozen other cafes. MUD's closer to the 3rd ave. L stop...if anyone's got other suggestions I'd love to hear them. I do love Cakeshop, but it's not really near any subway stations.

If anyone's free tomorrow, I'd be up for a meetup at any of the places scifibimoncon8 mentioned around 1 or 2pm. Just name the place and I'll be the brown-haired girl knitting a sock.

ooh, i want in on the crafty meetup!  lemme know if any of you are planning to meet again.  sunday afternoons are great, and i do love the cakeshop.  also, we could try and go to one of the etsy labs wednesday afternoon tea parties.  what do y'all think?

Sunday afternoons are pretty good for me... I would love to meet some crafty people, and learn some new stuff.

Don't know if people are still trying to organize this, but I'd love to hear more about it. If there are any LIC/Astoria people, Sunswick is a fine bar that usually pretty empty any night but Fri/Sat. And there's the beer garden, at least as long as it decides to be fall out and not winter.

Down for anything in Manhattan, though. We've got to make this happen, y'all!

hey y'all!!

just stumbled onto this and wanted to see if you've gotten together? even if you already have, let's get the talks started again because i'd love to join you!

i was thinking about places to meet and a lot of delis have large second floor seating areas that are packed on weekdays at lunch but empty at other times, so i'm sure we could find one that's centrally located for all of us and meet there!

i agree. it doesn't necessarily have to be a really trendy spot. we haven't met up yet. alot of talk and no action...not meaning that to be rude! sorry. i'm totally guilty of this too. lol  Grin

Hey everyone! I'm not sure if any of you are located in Astoria or there abouts but a number of ppl from our neighborhood are having a craft fair this coming Sunday.

you can check the blog here: http://astoriacraftcollective.blogspot.com/

If you're interested in being a part of Astoria Craft Collective then just reply!!

Also, please stop by the sale this weekend. It is taking place at the Waltz Astoria at 23-14 Ditmars Blvd. For those of you who don't know, Astoria is extremely accessible. Take the N or W train to the Ditmars station, make a left onto Ditmars Blvd. then walk west(down in numbers) until you hit the Waltz Astoria between 24th and 23rd Streets.

There will be tons of beautiful things! AND you'll get a chance to meet some fellow nyc crafters!
