    President in Friday?

    Hearing that the President is coming in to NYC Friday for a fundraising event!!
    Any info on ETA would be appreciated!! Hoping for a 5-ish arrival so I could scoot down from work (leave early) to Wall Street and get a gander (and some pics) of the Nighthawk V-22s.
    With Daylight Savings Time in effect Sunday morning it would be my last chance for awhile to see these babys before the early darkness settles in for the winter!!
    Thanks.

    No TFR yet - you can see the list here: http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html

    It does look like the Vice President will be in Boston on Wednesday...

    BTW, Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 3.

    Yes, the President will be in on Friday for a fundraiser. He'll also be visiting a high school in Brooklyn.

    LZ by the school?

    There was a practice landing by the ballfields in Prospect Park this afternoon, so there's your Brooklyn answer.

    I also saw 3 CH-46s (they're not gone yet!) fly down the East River around 1:30, but unless they did the landing staging during the 3 minutes I was inside buying lunch, they didn't do a practice at Wall Street.

    Very cool!! Thanks!! Now watching the landings in Prospect Park would be so nice no matter what the Nighthawks were flying!! Many (many) years ago (early 90s) I was at Miller Field in Staten Island when Daddy Bush flew
    in for a rare visit!! They were using the Sea Knights back then also!!

    Annoying, but it's much easier to close a small number of entrances than try to set up an amorphous perimeter around a certain area of the park. I still haven't been able to find out if there's going to be a second landing at Wall Street. If it's late in the afternoon, might get some good side light as they touch down.

    If they are closing the park for that amount of time I would think its because the copters will still be sitting there?
    BTW when they did the practice run on Tuesday who secured the field? PD/ESU? USSS? I mean they just didnt drop down then leave. Or did they?

    Looks like they relented and only certain parts of the park, I would guess closest to the ballfield, will be closed off.
    And I've been seeing sunset around 6PM lately so not sure how much light would be available though I'm guessing he wont spend that much time at the HS.
    Happy hunting!!
