GNYM Halloween Party
Join us for a family-friendly Halloween party. Many people come in costume, so you can, too! As always, you will have a chance to meet your fellow Mensans. We hope to see you there.
(Locations this year were determined at the last minute.)

Nassau 6pm-9pm
VFW, 20 Queens Street, Syosset, NY [map]
About 950 feet from the Syosset LIRR station (55 minutes out of Penn Station; almost all trains are one-seat (no train changes or transfers)).
Come hungry -- we will feed you all the hot and cold food and soft drinks you can consume -- Italian, Chinese, Greek, White Castles, snacks, cake, and even some Halloween candy!

Manhattan 7pm-?
Dinner at PJ Moran's, 3 E 48th St, New York, NY 10017 (between 5th Ave & Madison Ave in Midtown East) [map]. GNYM will pick up half the tab! Ask for the Mensa table when you arrive.

GNYM Holiday Party & GNYM 50th Anniversary Celebration

Meet with your fellow Mensans in a beautiful setting to kick-off the holiday season! It won't be the same with you, so please come! If you need additional details, please email Henry Yen at .

Greater New York Mensa is the Local Group for Downstate New York. That is, New York City (the boroughs of Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island) and the adjoining New York State counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam.

Greater New York Mensa (GNYM) is one of the oldest and largest local Mensa groups in the world, and the original home of the American Mensa national office.

What is Mensa?

Mensa is an international society with only one requirement for membership: a score in the top 2 percent on a standardized IQ test. Mensa follows no political agenda and holds no opinions, but rather serves two purposes:

(1) as a social organization, it provides a means of assembly and communication for its members, and

(2) under the auspices of MERF (Mensa Education and Research Foundation), Mensa promotes research and understanding in the area of human intelligence.
