Tour route / directions

Local meet up in Queens @ 9am, in Brooklyn @ 830am (to factor additional driving time).

Per the map, some shops are 10 min apart, while others are 40 minutes away. We are cramming a lot into the day and take into account the fish gazing time so early departure is necessary. If time runs short, we will likely trim a few stops.

Here are some folks tentative in attendance:

From Brooklyn
People should plan to arrive at the location below 8:00. (8:15 at the latest)
Below is a Google map AND street view so all should be clear where to go and what the area looks like.

From Queens
All people are being pickup by Dan starting 8am for Queens departure by 9am. If we are ahead of schedule before 10am, there's a duncan donuts across the street on glen cove road with free wifi where we can talk and trade plants and livestock.

What day would this be possible? I can volunteer to drive as long as it's on either a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

I can also deliver stuff from Frank to anyone in the city able to meet up at Penn Station :^) FYI!

Frank has some great prices and interesting fish,

Well, where is Franks? It usually takes me about 50 minutes to drive from exit 31 on the LIE to exit 64 where all the shops are around.

kubalik 11-16-2012 11:13 PM
