Full Meetup Calendar

The 30th New York City Meetup event was held on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at Jefferson Market Library in Lower Manhattan.

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

There is one public meeting in the afternoon at Jefferson Market Library, where we take further steps to organize the Wikimedia New York City local chapter, and provide a salon-style forum for discussion of Wikipedia and Wikimedia issues.

Additionally, there is an optional post-meeting dinner at a neighborhood restaurant.

Main public meeting[edit]

Optional post-meeting meetup[edit]
