Just outside the Manhattan School of Music in Morningside Heights.



OtherJack had not been checking coordinates for the last few months because busy, but this one was so close to home (<10 minute walk) that NWoodruffs program alerted him and he pretty much had to go for it. Especially since his daily bus home from work already drops him off even closer to the point (like a 4 minute walk.)

Sputnik had not been checking either, but her brother alerted her. They agreed to meet at the point at 6:45pm.

Sempaispellcheck was also planning to go in the afternoon, but time got away from him.


Sputnik arrived first and was already hashdancing when OtherJack got there (his bus had run into more traffic than usual.) They hadn't seen each other since 2016 so got to catch up a little. The point was very straightforward to find, it seemed to be in the covered ditch between the sidewalk and the Manhattan School of Music building, but an outstretched arm over the railing easily brought one's phone within GPS error radius.

First hash of 2017 for OtherJack!
