With the caveat that this GTG, lovely though it will be, pales in the shadow of rhkkmk's Boston extravaganza. (And apologies for usurping the Asia boards with a post about New York City-!)

Bob, keep me informed. I promised a friend on Long Island that I would try to visit her this summer. Maybe this GTG and a trip to see my friend could be combined???

Awesome, Bob! Glad to give you a reason to visit the Apple. I can provide a list of ice cream and gelato vendors to help keep the humidity at bay while you wander the concrete canyons.

Carol, I hope you can join us too!

Ordinarily we'd consider it, but we will be in RI that weekend. Have fun...

We'll miss you, Craig. Bob, I've emailed my friend on LI to see if a visit around the 13th will work in her schedule. Hope to hear back by this evening.

I'll try really hard to get to NYC for this GTG.

laurieco, that's great! I remember meeting you at the one Boston GTG I've made it to so far. I added you and the possibility of Mr. laurieco to the post on the US board.

Looks like we'll be at least 20 people, including Amy_D and some other Fodor's staff. Amy said:

<< Hi everyone - we're really excited about this GTG! I'm working on a list of who can attend from our HQ and we'll be bringing along some goodies for this as well. We just got a new shipment buttons that I think you might like. Here's a sneak peak http://instagr.am/p/KNe_SGnE85 >>

Unfortunately Mr. laurieco cannot make it. He's coming home from D.C. That day but he's flying into Albany. I'll be there though and we'll both be at the Boston GTG of course.

Thanks for the update, laurieco. Is Mr. laurieco flying into Albany so he can go play the horses at Saratoga?

Love the buttons! I've never met any staff members before, so a real treat is in store for me!
NYwoman says she will be coming as well.

Hmmm, is the NYC GTG going to over-shadow the BOS GTG?? Looks like pretty fine competition!

This is very exciting!! Bob, please tell Beth we are very happy she'll join us!

And Carol, I'm all for a little friendly competition if it means we'll get more opportunities to see more of everyone.
