Reboot thread? Reboot thread. HUGE thanks to bob page for for letting me use his already fantastic OP (I know you're out there lurking) but now with several updates to it . Also, thanks to Fallengorn for the subtitle.
Welcome to beautiful New York City, home to NYU, Columbia University, CUNY/SUNY, several prominent art schools, famous local sports teams, Humans of New York, and pizza among the billions of things this restless city has to offer. We have a 110+ year old subway system that turns into a sauna in the summer with how hot it gets in there. We experience all four seasons, tourists love to come here in droves all year long but particularly more so in the summer, and we recently happen be the worst city in the US to retire in because of continually rising costs of living/rent. Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Manhattan together form the 5 boroughs connected together by bridges, ferries, subway lines, and buses. Long Island is the suburban section of NYC where you get to see lots and lots of trees.
We’re also BFFs with neighboring states New Jersey and Connecticut which together form the Tri-State area. Further upstate is Albany where all the state legislative magic happens as well places such as Buffalo, Oswego, New Paltz, and Lake Eerie among others. Further up north is our neighbor country, Canada with Toronto being the biggest city closest to us and Niagara Falls being the border town .

NYC GAF meet ups
The GAF meetups are self-explanatory: take a bunch of GAF members from the city, a neighboring state, or from abroad, throw them into a bar or a big gaming event for shenanigans ahoy. Socializing is name of the game here as plenty of fun times will be had.
Upcoming GAF meet ups:
Past NYC GAF meet ups:
Note 1: I've excluded NY Comic Con threads because it's usually been impossible to organize a meet up during it due to conflicting schedules. *: The Scribblenauts Launch Party was the first GAF meet up I ever attended.
