Thanks to all who showed up today for our inaugural set of twin meetups despite the foreboding forecast! Each one of you helped to make our first meetup day a great success. I was delighted to meet each of you, and I hope you had as good a time as I did.
Six intrepid Cityscapers laughed in the face of the weather prognosticators and joined me for our 11am photo meetup. As we finished our introductions and started to walk within the portals of City Hall, the gentle sprinkle that first greeted us ceased, and for the most part of the next two hours, we strolled outside with our heads dry. Afterwards, five of us walked to Reading Terminal Market for some rest, some schmoozing, and some cheesesteak.
As I walked back to City Hall for our 2pm meetup, the sun actually was out, and I found ten more Cityscapers assembled; within a few more minutes, we numbered sixteen – an excellent turnout! As in the morning, we photographed around the south and west sides of City Hall, in Love Park (JFK Plaza,) Suburban Station, the Grumman Greenhouse at PAFA, and finally in the amazing north portal of City Hall.
