Must admit that the panhandlers near the F train can be annoying. Even more annoying are the drunk-ass gamblers who hang out all day and night at the OTB right in front of the 179th station. Drunk, loud, fighting-with-each-other, every fucking day. Sad -ass old-timers. They're like one major gambling loos away from being homeless ... Then they take up residence a few feet away on the same corner.
Also, I've been thinking about the alternate location that was proposed. Meeting at the ass-end of Manhattan near Water street, instead of Bryant park. You organized this, so it's up to you. There's a few historical spots near Water street. But yeah, more fun stuff near Bryant park.
