BROOKLYN COLLEGE HISTORICAL SOCIETY--SPRING TRIP TO WASHINGTON, DC
Photos (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) are now available--my thanks to Christine, Sam, and Thomas; if anyone else has photos they'd like me to post, please bring them in and I'll scan them.
We'll be spending three days and three nights in the nation's Capitol, leaving NYC on Sunday, March 24 via Amtrak and returning late on Wednesday, March 27. Rail cost is $140; please have the money for me when we arrive. Please meet by 9.15 at the Amtrak waiting area in Penn Station (right across from the ticket windows).
We'll be staying in the Hotel Harrington, at 11th and E Streets, NW. (202-628-8140). It's located right off Pennsylvania Ave, between the White House and Capitol Hill (near Metro Center), within walking distance of nearly everything in the city.
We'll arrive by 3pm Sunday; it's a free day.
