Hi:

I am new in this forum. Is the New York chapter still meeting? If so, how can I join meetings?

Thanks

Hello,

Also recently moved to NYC and am curious if the NYC local chapter still meets regularly? Is the bogleheadNYC@gmail.com address still relevant?

Thanks.

Same Question.

Would love to attend meeting. Please let me know if this group is currently active!

The next meeting is November 14th at an Indian restaurant.
This chapter is moderately active. We had about 8 attendees at the meeting 10 days ago.

Didn't realize the NYC chapter was meeting so regularly. I don't seem to be on the current list, but would love to attend again!

I received this from the organizer on Jan 4, 2016:

Subject: Bogleheads-NYC Chapter: Moving on

Happy New Year NYC Bogleheads!

I realize that I have too many things on my plate now and would find it hard to continue organizing meet ups in 2016.

Would any of you be interested in taking over this responsibility? I will work with you in transitioning the group contacts and emails.

Thanks very much for sharing your knowledge over the last couple of years.


I haven't received any updates since then.

I think it's important to keep the NYC chapter active.

I would be willing to take over if necessary. All I need is someone to reach out to me and give me a run down or let me know who to contact.

I agree that it's important to keep the NYC chapter active. Thanks for stepping up and agreeing to take over as the Local Chapter Coordinator.

PM me with the following info:

'Your first name
An email address you'll use for this purpose (suggest something like NYCBogleheads at gmail.com or at yahoo.com. You probably shouldn't use your regular email address because it will be listed on the public Local Chapters Map.

Once I have that information from you, I'll add your name and contact email to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you and then you'll be in business.

You and your members can then communicate with each other here on the Local Chapters sub-forum regarding meeting dates, locations, times, agendas, etc.
Best Regards - Mel | | Semper Fi

I know a great space for future meetings -
480 West 42nd Street, 2nd floor
Signature Theatre Venue, which has a suitable area for us. It's spacious with bathrooms and an adjoining cafe (where you're not obliged to purchase anything )

Hi Everyone,

I missed Mel's message, but have finally reached out to him.

My hope is to get something setup and have a gathering in the next 4-6 weeks. I wanted to gage interest and everyone's approx location. Venue suggestions can also be made.

Hey WhizKid,

Have you ever used this location for anything before? What do you know about the hours and use requirements. I tried doing some cursory research but came up empty. PM me, if you wish. The location is pretty got for those based/working in Manhattan.

It's my understanding that this chapter is very spread out, encompassing the Boroughs, Long Island and parts of New Jersey. Depending on what type of interest exists this could work as a central location.

The last few have been held in the Sony building center --
I will be coming from East Village.
The west 42nd street sounds great- if it's available.

It's the Signature Theatre Cafe.
I have been there many times in the past. There is no charge to use the venue and no obligation to purchase anything. There is an elevator and staircase to the second floor and there is also free Wi-Fi. They are open from Noon to Midnight, Tuesday through Sunday. The only caveat is they have live music at 6pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

Hi all,

There is a NYC Bogleheads Google group here: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/boglehead-nyc It had regular meetings until the end of last year when the previous organizer stepped down. It'd be great if we could get them going again.

I just sent around a Doodle poll for a weekend meeting in June: http://doodle.com/poll/y6728tki3hnzfpyu

We used to meet at the Sony Atrium at 550 Madison Ave which seemed to work pretty well as a central location. I'm up for trying a new space though.

FilQ, I set up that poll before I checked this thread but I'd be happy for you to taking over the organizing. :)

Alice,

You are welcome to do the organizing. I have a call setup with the previous organizer to transition the group/mailing list, and can gladly pass along your information to him. I have sent you a PM with some additional information.

Are Bogleheads meetings usually on a weekend? I'd much prefer a week night, when I'm already in midtown Manhattan for work, rather than coming into the city on a weekend.

We can definitely do weeknights too! They are just a bit harder for me to make, so maybe someone else can organize those. We used to alternate Saturdays and Thursdays. At the next meeting we can discuss how to schedule these going forward. (And those of you who can't make it, post your preferences here.)

Last call for votes on the Doodle poll for a June meeting: http://doodle.com/poll/y6728tki3hnzfpyu

I think we will use the old location, the Sony Atrium at 550 Madison Ave in Midtown Manhattan.
