The 21st New York City Meetup event was held on Saturday, October 16, 2010 at Jefferson Market Library in Lower Manhattan.
What, Where, When, and How?
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.

- Jefferson Market Library, 425 Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave). 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
Optional post-meeting meetup
