You are invited to attend:
The May 20th meeting of the Long Island Sunrise Trail Chapter of the NRHS will feature a special program by internationally known transportation photojournalist Joseph M. Calisi of
New York City. Joe has been closely following the East Side Access project
-- the first expansion of the LIRR in about a century, one that will bring
the LIRR to Grand Central Terminal. This PowerPoint show explains much of
the history and progress of this historic project. It contains several never-before-published
photos past and present and many showing the current progress. Joe's photos
have been published in nearly every railfan and rail industry magazine-most
recently, a 2 part article in Passenger Train Journal about the LIRR. He also
assembles video news segments for New York
City area cable television stations.
The Chapter meets at 8:00 p.m. on the third Friday of every month (except July and August) at the Christ Episcopal Church, basement hall at S. Carll Avenue and Prospect Street, Babylon (Long Island), NY The Church is located one block south of the big brick village hall /firehouse/courthouse on West Main Street (a.k.a. State Route 27A, Montauk Highway, or Merrick Rd.), in Babylon Village off S. Carll Avenue, and only 3 blocks south of the west end of the Babylon station of the Long Island Rail Road.
