An Open Air Gathering at Carl Schurz Park - Friday, September 16

Kicking off the Official 60th Reunion festivities on Friday September 16, from 1 PM on, there is an everybody welcome, open-air gathering at picturesque Carl Schurz Park on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. This event is being coordinated by Marty Gottlieb and Steve Bernstein. Carl Schurz Park is a longtime favorite of NYC east siders for a quiet stroll on the promenade along the East River, with a pause here and there to appreciate some of the lovely flower gardens, or at either of the two lively dog runs, along the way. At the north end of the promenade is Gracie Mansion, which also serves as the mayor’s official residence.   (https://carlschurzparknyc.org)

Extremely easy to get to, the park’s main entrance is on East 86th Street and East End Avenue. The park is easily accessible by subway, bus, and water taxi. Carl Schurz is also just a short walk to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim, The Jewish Museum, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian, The Neue Museum, and The Frick etc. It is also conveniently surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants, including a kosher deli. For those coming by car there is free street parking (for the really lucky few lol, just remember to check the signs), plus nearby meter parking, and numerous parking garages, (yes, not cheap, but some do offer short stay rates). Well before Reunion weekend we will provide a list and locations of the most convenient and reasonably priced garages. A special note for those with mobility concerns, the entire park has well paved and easily accessible walkways including the promenade. There are numerous park benches on the promenade and throughout the park everywhere you look. There are wide open grassy areas and convenient rest rooms very near the main meet area. Why not stop by and see many of your classmates in an informal, pleasant environment before the other exciting events of the weekend?

A New York Mets Game at Citi Field

Shea Stadium closed at the end of the 2008 season and Citi Field opened in March of 2009. It's a beautiful venue and we are planning to attend a game between the METS and the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night, September 16, 2022 at 7:10. 

There is a sign up sheet on the reunion website and you have a choice of seats in the 300 sections in an upper deck (not the very top sections) for $58 or in the 100 sections for $124.  The seats will be near first base or third base depending upon availability.

Please go to the reunion website signup sheets and check off if you want to join us and how many seats you want at which price level.  Then mail me a check payable to me (since I will be purchasing the tickets for our group) to Marty Gottlieb, 9 Cupsaw Court, Nanuet NY 10954. 

 

FYI (martygott@aol.com; phone 914-772-4338)

 

The METS are having a wonderful season so far and tickets are going fast. The deadline to order tickets is July 10.

Tickets will be ordered only when I have your money in hand. After the deadline above, you can still order tickets but I can't guarantee that you would be sitting with your classmates. You should be aware that you need to have the ballpark app on your smartphone to receive the tickets I will send to you. You can get it at the Apple store or the play store from Android.

When I receive your check for payment indicating how many tickets in which deck, I will send you an email  to acknowledge receipt of your money (include your email and phone number with your check). If you don't hear from me in a reasonable time period, contact me.
