NYC Holiday Shopping & Sightseeing Trip

We are once again taking a trip into New York City for some holiday sightseeing and shopping! We held this event a few years ago (check out pictures here) and it was a great time. We ate at Celsius in Bryant Park, shopped at the Bryant Park holiday fair, saw the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and had some fun in FAO Schwarz.

We plan to carpool from North Jersey at around 12:00, or if it’s more convenient, you can meet us in the city at around 2:00. Once we have a headcount we’ll set up carpooling and public transportation logistics. Hope you can join us!
