An exciting day begins with a fun-filled breakfast at the famous Ellen’s Stardust Diner, a 50’s restaurant featuring a singing
wait staff. Next we travel with our local step on guide through the popular communities of Greenwich Village, Little Italy and
Chinatown, Empire State Building and other time-honored landmarks decorated for the season. Reflect at the 9/11 Memorial and
visit the Museum, a poignant tribute to the lives lost. From here, (for those interested), it is just a short walk to St. Paul’s Cathedral
where George Washington once worshiped and Trinity Church. We return to our hotel to freshen up before dinner-on-the-town
followed by the sweetest holiday treat at Radio City Music Hall and the incredible Christmas Spectacular featuring the highkicking Rockettes!

We have a late checkout of our hotel this morning and a visit to Chelsea Market. The market is located in the former National
Biscuit Companies factory where Oreo Cookies were manufactured. The complex covers a full square block. In addition to the
retail concourse of anchor stores, food courts and restaurants, there are broadcasting companies including: Oxygen Network, Food
