[edit] Location

Nearby 3573 Bruckner Blvd, Bronx NY.

It appears to be on the sidewalk by the parking lot.

[edit] Plans

When I saw that both the Saturday and Sunday geohash locations this weekend were in the Bronx, and were furthermore close both to each other and also to stations on the Six Train, I determined to get both of them in one shot.

The Saturday geohash looks easy enough to access; the sidewalk by a church parking lot off of Bruckner Blvd. I plan to be there around 11:15pm-ish.--Elipongo (talk) 18:48, 7 December 2013 (EST)

[edit] Expedition

As my real time comments above allude, I took the New York City Subway to the location.

I hopped on the 1 Train at 86th St, then transferred to the 2 Train at 96th St. I detrained at Simpson St and walked the couple blocks to the 6 Train at Hunt's Point Ave (that should be a free transfer, the stations are SO close!) I rode until we reached the end of the line - Pelham Bay Park Terminal Station (Made famous by the novel and Movies The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.)

From there it was a five minute walk to the location. It was on the sidewalk in front of the parking lot of a lovely Greek Orthodox church, and a strangely empty I-95 was right across the street!

It was cold, 30 degrees F with a 10mph North wind. I didn't linger. Besides, I had to get to the nearby Sunday location.

The saga continues at 2013-12-08 40 -73
