meet at 103rd Street and Central Park West
Rain Date: Saturday, June 15
As the sunny days grow longer, one often desires a happy excursion to whittle away the hours with friends. What better way to do so than with a Victorian picnic? Join the New York 19th Century Society for an afternoon of dining al fresco, good conversation, reading aloud, lawn games of the gentler sort, and photography.
Bring food or drink to share. Suggested attire (not required): summer whites, garden party frocks, tea dress, steampunk, Goth, or Lolita.
We will gather at the Great Hill to spread our blankets and enjoy food and drink. Closest subways are the C and B trains to 103rd Street and Central Park West. The park entrance is across the street from the subway station. When you enter the park, walk north (uphill) until you arrive at a large circular meadow ringed with stately trees.
