Hope you can make this meetup! Given the time of year, we’ll probably have a moderate turnout, which will give those of you who can make it an even better opportunity to have an in-depth conversation with Michael Hudson as well as other members of the NC community, and get a drink and perhaps munchies. The weather looks to be accommodating for the winter, so please come over.
Thursday January 23, 2020
5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Playwright Irish Pub
27 West 35th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues)
New York, NY 10001
As you can see, the venue is near Grand Central and Penn Station, and not far from Port Authority, meaning commuter-friendly.
As you can see, it’s near stations for the B, D, F, and M, as well as the 6, so it’s reasonably accessible.
The owner John has graciously set an area set aside, so tell the manager (who could be John himself) you are with the Naked Capitalism group. They will turn off the TVs in our section for us.
We also typically run later than 8 PM, so don’t hesitate to drop by!
Readers have very much enjoyed meeting each other, so I hope you can come by to mix with like-minded people and enjoy the discussion.
See you soon!
Long time lurker, just posting to RSVP. Looking forward to meeting everyone there.
Looking forward to being there. Coming from Eastern CT; perversely, driving is faster and cheaper, so probably better, but… parking??? Will I be able to find street parking within 5-10 blocks of the Pub between 3-5:00 PM? I’m guessing that a hundred thousand people drive out of Manhattan each day in that time frame, so I’d expect to find a spot, but maybe there aren’t that many people who are crazy enough to commute into NYC by car…?
Also, I’d be glad to offer round-trip ride to any other Naked Capitalists near I-95 in CT.
I am in town! Plan to stop by for a little bit and say hi!
I might drop by. I read NC fairly often.
I can almost guarantee you won’t find street parking in midtown — spaces are scarce and there is a lot competition for those that exist. There are many parking garages, all of which are expensive.
One of these days I am going to fly to NYC just to meet Michael Hudson. I love reading his articles and buy all his books. I wish I could join.
