Our Primary Meeting Place:
The New York Map Society most often holds its lectures on Tuesday or
Wednesday evenings at the New York Public Library's Stephen A.

there are free and open to the public, but space limitations may require
an RSVP to attend.
Field trips to map sites, special events, and occasional lectures may held
on weekends. Some events are reserved for current-paid members only,
and some field trips are at venues that may require an admission fee.

Avenues: The World School, Headquarters, 11 East 26th Street, between
Madison and Fifth Avenues. RSVPs are requested.
