NYC Watch Out!

NYC Watch Out!

Originally uploaded by EricGjerde.

… because I’m coming to town!

Going to be visiting the Origami Convention at the FIT from June 23-25, and then doing some work stuff until the 1st.

If you’ve got suggestions on things to see, places to eat, or if you feel like meeting up and telling me what a geek I am in person, now’s a good time for it!

I’ll (hopefully) have a decent display of my work at the OUSA convention exhibition during the weekend of the 24-25th, and I think it might be free to look around. By all means stop by if you have a chance.



: Rich says the following:

Public Access is 10:30-12pm, 2:30-4:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Just a heads up on the timing! Come by and check it out!

    It looks like the Public Access is 10:30-12pm, 2:30-4:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday. I may take the train into the city to say hello to yourself and Joel. I’d love to see your work in person!

  2. If you only go to one restaurant, I recommend Lombardi’s pizzeria ( on Spring Street in SoHo. I’m pretty sure it’s cash-only, and it’s right down the block from Balthazaar, where you can get a great French Martini to classify your evening.

    One of my goals in life is to live in New York again.

    Thanks for the times, Rich! that helps a lot, I’ll make sure to update my photo/post with them.

    I can’t speak for Joel, of course, but I know that I would personally love to meet more of my Flickr friends in “real life”, especially fellow tessellation junkies. Joel’s work is particularly fascinating to see, believe me!

    Rachel- I desperately miss good NY pizza, so I’ll definitely hit the joint for some good eats! Living in Minneapolis has deprived me of the good stuff, and I’m not a fan of the Chicago-style deep dish. Thanks for the tip!

    My goal in life is to live in San Francisco; we both have great cities in mind, just at other sides of the country. Both in very good taste, I think.

  4. I’ll be sure to see you at the convention, Eric. You should get a pretty good reception amongst the OUSA NYC folk as well, since it seems you were the one responsable for introducing many of them to Joel Cooper.

    One word on the public access times: Usually the only part of the convention open to the public is the exhibition area. That’s still plenty for people to see, but if you’re hoping to meet up with flickr folk, you might find yourself in a part of the convention where your non-registered friends don’t have access. (For example, when not in class most convention-goers will be hanging out in the “hospitality area” where everyone sits, folds, and shares, and I think this is off-limits to non-paying people.) Just a heads-up.

    I’m looking forward to your tessellation class- I’m not sure what other classes I will actually take, though.

    I’ll probably make a point of hooking up with some flickr folks, but leave some contact info for them or some such. Thanks for the tip!

    I’m happy that Joel is going, and I’m really going to dig seeing people’s reactions to his work.
