The 8th New York City Meetup event was an informal picnic on August 24, 2008 from about 2:00 to 8:00 PM. The picnic took place at Prospect Park. We met by the picnic house.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]

As the second annual WikiNYC Picnic (as this has been called), the goal was to have a relaxing, enjoyable meeting of Wikipedia editors (others were welcome as well) in one of the many great parks in New York City. As a stark contrast to the previous four meetups, this was not a Wikimedia NYC meeting, although we were still welcome to talk business if we feel like it. (I don't believe we did).

The location for this picnic was Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
