From an email I received:
*6/23: LOCATION CHANGE! Poly Picnic in the Park*
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to change our picnic venue from Gantry Plaza to Socrates Sculpture Park, about 1 1/2 miles north along the waterfront from our original location. Socrates Sculpture Park is a wonderful large-scale sculpture and multimedia park in a unique outdoor environment overlooking the East River. It is located at 32-01 Vernon Boulevard, in Long Island City. Start time will remain 1 p.m. and the park closes at dusk.
We will meet along the northwestern boundary of the park between the waterfront and the treeline. There is parking at the north and south entrances of the park, and on surrounding streets.
Here is a link with directions and nearby transportation:

We apologize for any confusion and we hope you can come join us tomorrow!
DIRECTIONS BY SUBWAY: Take the N train to the Broadway stop in Queens and walk eight blocks west
on Broadway (toward the East River) to the intersection of Vernon Boulevard.
If you need help getting to the picnic site at Socrates Sculpture Park, you can call or text 917.699.2772. We are still starting at 1 p.m. Hope to see you there!
