The first impromptu Omnibus meet-up, thanks in large part to our friends at WNYC, was a huge success. More than 80 people showed up to explore the Newtown Creek Nature Walk with its designer, artist and longtime creek explorer George Trakas. George graciously shared design strategies, local histories and anecdotes from a ten-year design and construction process with the assembled urban enthusiasts.
There were lots of cameras snapping away, ours included. We’ve added some photos to WNYC’s Cityscapes Flickr group, and so should you. Be sure to tag them urbanomnibus!
Andrea from WNYC recorded video testimonials of where people want to explore next. We’ll post a link as soon as those go up. If you couldn’t make it – where do you want to go next? Leave your ideas in the comments below.
Thanks to everyone that came out for the event! We had a blast, and can’t wait for the next one.
