Staten Island Ferry Terminal
This past weekend's expedition to the cemetery didn't yield much more than a lovely walk and a chance to practice our new-found recording skills on other, non-cicada cemetery subjects. This weekend though, we'll taking an expedition to places with documented cicada sightings.
Staten Island has been reported to overrun with cicadas in many spots. (Check out Radiolab's Cicada Tracker Map here
and this article
) The Staten Island Greenbelt is a section of parks in southern part of Staten Island that can be accessed via a combination of the Staten Island Ferry, Staten Island Railway, and walking.
This Saturday let's meet at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal at 1 PM. The journey to the greenbelt takes a little over an hour, so this will put us there between 2 and 3, at time frame which should yield us good recording results.
The ferry is free and your Metrocard should work on the Staten Island Railway.
Please RSVP on the class blog so we have an idea of how many people we should expect to join us. Newcomers are always welcome.
More details, if necessary, will be posted to the blog as the weekend nears.
