On Monday May 9, 2016, from 7:00AM to 2:30PM, New York time, Mercury will transit the Sun. Come watch it with me! The entrance to the park is at Seaman and Isham Streets in northern Manhattan. To arrive by subway, take the "A" train to the last stop. Come out the stairs at the front of the train, and go up the hill alongside the church. This entrance is right in front of you. Go into the park, and look into the baseball diamonds. We'll be there.
