Wikimedia New York City officially serves communities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Local committees and/or new chapters across the Northeast are also anticipated in future.

The ninth Philly Wikipedia Meetup occurred on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 15:00 EDT. It was hosted by WikiProject Philadelphia.

The meetup was organized by mblumber and Whiteknight.


We met in the basement of Drexel's Creese Student Center between 32nd and 33rd streets on Chestnut Street until approximately 5:30. We then headed over to Mikey's American Grill for dinner.
