Inside Gate 6, Trip to SoHo

October 3, 2008

What’s going on St. John’s…

If you are looking for something to do tomorrow, and want to give some of that green in your pocket to your favorite clothing designer, why not take a trip with residence life to the famed SoHo district of Manhattan. As one of the most architecturally rich and classic parts in the United States, you will be given a tour of the area and see past all the designer stores and shops (my favorite is my company’s store, Adidas). The trip begins at 12:00 PM and will be an all day event. For more information, follow this link.

Waterfalls 1
waterfalls 2

The $15 Million art installation is closing on October 13th, so make sure you get to see it before it goes they way of Christo and Jean-Claude’s “The Gates”.

The NYC Waterfalls are four artificial cascades erected in different sites along the East River. there are two in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan, and one on Governor’s Island. They run from 5:30 through 9:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays, and from 12:30 through 9:00 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and weekends.

Nycwaterfalls.org shows you where you can get the best view of each waterfall, most of these vantage points are Downtown and Brooklyn, withing walking distance of each other, and easily accessible by subway. There’s also a suggested bike route that allows you to get a view of all waterfalls from several locations.

Circle Line Downtown gives boat tours of all four waterfalls as well as other sights in New York Harbor.

Just remember, there’s only 13 days left to see them!
