Attention all urban parrot watchers: the next Wild Brooklyn Parrot Safari happens on Saturday, May 2nd. Here are the details:
DATE: Saturday, July 11, 2015
TIME: 11 AM
LOCATION: Green-Wood Cemetery (25th street entrance on 5th Avenue). Please meet on the benches outside the cemetery’s iron gate (see map below).
PLEASE RSVP by Email: Steve (you know the symbol) BrooklynParrots.com. This way, if poor weather or other incident occurs likely to keep the parrots from flying I can let you know in advance.
Green-Wood Cemetery is a fabulous place to become acquainted with the wild parrots of Brooklyn, who — legend has it — have lived at the Cemetery since 1962.
Let’s meet on the benches outside the cemetery — Southwest corner of 25th Street and 5th Avenue (Brooklyn, not Manhattan).
Coming from Manhattan? Take the N or D to Atlantic-Pacific/Barclays.
Change to the R and ride four stops to 25th Street. Walk one block East (uphill) and you’ll be there.
Here’s a link to the MTA subway page on the R line:
And Google Maps coordinates to the meeting site:
