As the date approaches, here is information
about the hotel, parking etc.
DIRECTIONS to Marriot Laguardia:
From NY - Triborough
Bridge to the Grand Central Parkway. Take 94th Street exit. Continue on
service road to Ditmars Blvd., and to the Marriott.
From LI - Grand
Central Pky to 94th Street exit, follow signs to Ditmars Blvd., keep left
When you enter the parking lot, take a ticket
at the gate. We will have the cards that you need to insert in the gate
when you leave. There is FREE PARKING for our reunion guests. Those
staying overnight will also have free parking.
Please bring your cameras. We will be posting your digital photos on the
Alumni Association website for viewing after the reunion. Just be
sure to list the names of everyone in your pictures. See below how
to send your photos.*
We did not arrange for a separate brunch for Sunday morning, but we can
all eat in the Steinway Restaurant in the Marriott. They have full breakfast
specials, as well as individual breakfast items on the menu.
We have had some questions about a "dress code" for the reunion.
The operative code is COMFORT. No gowns, tuxes or jeans - wear what
will be comfortable and look good. Hopefully, we all have at least one
outfit that meets those criteria.
We are not hiring a photographer. We expect that many of you will be bringing
your digital cameras to record the evening, and those photos can be posted
on the Alumni website. That way you will be able to view them all, and
even print them. Just remember who you photographed, so all
people in your photos can be named.
how to send your photos: If you're using a
digital camera, please send the photo as an e-mail attachment, with captions,
and sized to 640 x 480, to Carol Marston, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each photo will be made into a thumbnail which can be clicked to view at
the original size.
If you don't know who a person is in a photo
and you're writing a caption, please put in a line and question mark where
the person is standing, left to right, like this: _______? and possibly
someone will know that person and fill in the blank space by writing to
Carol. Please remember to caption your photos; they'll be returned
to you if they do not have captions.
We've published a list of those who've made
reservations. Please go here:
We have also published a list of 1959 classmates
who are unable to be reached. It's on two pages. If you know
any way to contact them, please notify Carole or Karen at their above e-mail
We had said that we planned to distribute
an updated directory of our clasmates at the reunion. We need your
as soon as possible. Please write two paragraphs (100
words or so) summarizing your life, what you have learned, etc., and send
it, along with up to two photos and whatever contact information you want
published (names, mailing address, e-mail address, phones etc.). Based
on what we have received so far, please make the entry personal
- don't make it sound like a resume.
One of our classmates, David Schnitzer, is
putting the directory together for us, and we are sure you will be impressed
with the finished product. We think you will also be surprised to learn
what some of our classmates have been up to these past 50 years!
You may send your information by e-mail or
snail mail. Mail it to me at Carole Cohen, 2287 Mott Ave.,
3C, Far Rockaway, NY 11691. If you send photos that you want
returned, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
