Convention update: Tours

Wednesday, Aug. 6 is the day for touring New York City and environs.

(Wednesday evening is the opening reception for the convention, so you want to make sure you arrive in time to be a part of it!)

We already have one special guided tour of the Costume Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, courtesy of David Wolfe, scheduled for early Wednesday morning. ATTENDANCE IS LIMITED! Another good reason to register early for the convention. Those who register early get their registration packet early -- greatly improving their chances of getting into the museum tour.

Many people like to explore on their own, and have been to NYC before. It's a great walking city, and the express bus leaves you at 42nd Street and Eighth Ave., a stroll away from Times Square. Garth Lax will be sending out emails with plenty of ideas for those who want to tour on their own.

But many others prefer a group activity. There is so much to do in the city, what to choose? The Folk Art Museum? MOMA? The Met? A shopping and luncheon tour? Central Park? The historic lower East Side? The meatpacking district or gallery hopping in Chelsea?

And of course, there's always Broadway. Wednesday is matinee day in New York--most Broadway shows have a 3 pm performance.

I need to hear from you! Let me know what the preference is for an afternoon group activity, and I'll see what I can do. Group size may be limited, depending on what type of event we choose.
