Well I am actually in North Carolina right now until Tuesday evening!
I could meet Thursday afternoon or Saturday morning or afternoon or Sunday morning or afternoon... but I think this weekend is the holiday weekend? Do you want to plan on Thursday afternoon between 4-7pm? Well, also, Friday is the Greenmarket at Union Square. But Thurs might be better this week...
Union Square is great bc of the subway/bus service to it, and the greenmarket, and Barnes and Noble and Toys R Us, and the park has a lawn, three playgrounds, a dog run... one of the playgrounds is all sand with a swingset and one climbing gym. It is usually pretty calm and quiet compared to the chaos in the other two crowded playgrounds. We like that one the best, and like digging in the sand.
Thompkins Square is further southeast, but it has sprinklers in warmer weather. It can also get crowded and crazy - I don't much enjoy chasing my son around in there bc he is still not a "professional climber" so I can't just watch him play. That's why I really like the sandbox right now at Union Square - bc we can have a more relaxing time and he can still play and I get to actually talk to friends. It is on the west side of Union Square Park.
Why don't we meet there on Thursday afternoon - anytime after 4 until say 7? I don't know how well that accomodates working moms, tho. Maybe after the holiday weekend we can schedule something on a sat/sun, unless a bunch of you want to plan to meet sat/sun the 2nd/3rd of July?
