The team here at NewYork.com is joining forces with @WhyILoveNewYorkCity to host a citywide Instagram meetup, complete with photo challenges, prizes for the best photos and an after party! (Check back in early September for after party and prize details.)
Mark your calendars:
When: Saturday, September 19 (start time will be announced in a few weeks)
Where: Meetup location vary by team. See below for details.
How to sign up: First, pick a team. There are eight teams total — two in Manhattan, two in Queens, two in Brooklyn, one in the Bronx and one in Staten Island. Which team you choose is up to you. You could choose a team that is convenient to you and represents the borough you live in (borough pride!) or you could choose a team in a borough that you don’t yet know well and use this as an opportunity to explore a new side of NYC. The list of teams, including the captains of each team, are listed below.
Once you know which team you want to join, sign up on Eventbrite.
