FPN appearing slow

wow, November already.. so that makes it time for the December meeting of the Big Apple Pen Club, NYC's only active fountain pen club!  It will be, as always, the second Thursday of the month, which is THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, from 7-9 PM, at Bard Hall, just west of Columbus Circle in the west side of midtown Manhattan. 
The group, like NYC, is wildly eclectic, our meetings are informal, and we have a great time.  So if you're in NYC, coming to our town for business or pleasure, or need a good excuse to visit NYC, join us!
We do not have an agenda, just bring your pens and ink, particularly your recent acquisitions, and join the pen talk!  Feel free to bring whatever you want to eat and drink. Directions to Bard Hall are below. 
Looking forward to seeing you there.  Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. 
Bard Hall, the residential building for Bard Graduate Center, is located at 410 West 58th Street in Manhattan, just west of 9th Avenue/Columbus Avenue.  The best way to get there from almost anywhere in NYC is via subway -- take the 1/A/C/B/D trains to 59th Street/Columbus Circle (note: 2/3 trains do not stop at 59th, even though it is a major intersection). Depending on which subway exit stair you use, put Central Park behind you and walk around the southern (left) side of the Time Warner complex, which is 58th Street. Walk west on 58th (against traffic); 9th Avenue/Columbus is the next intersection west. Bard Hall is diagonally across the intersection and three addresses downhill on 58th at 410, immediately past the small construction site.  Please tell the guard you are there for the Pen Club -- you will be expected and directed to the proper room

home: MontBlanc 149/Waterman Blue/Black; Omas Extra/Diamine Twilight; Esterbrook SJ/Akkerman Konigsblauw
