You are invited to experience art, architecture, fine dining, and more with a day trip to New York City, organized for you by the Farmington Libraries! Go on a tour of the New Whitney Museum of American Art, have lunch in the Meatpacking District, stroll on the recently completed High Line, then finish the day with a walk around Battery Park and One World Trade Center Plaza.
The bus will pick up passengers at 7:30 a.m. at Farmington’s Main Library, located at Six Monteith Drive. The bus will return around 9:00 pm to the Library.
Upon arrival in the Meatpacking District, we will head to the Whitney for a docent tour, followed by lunch at the Museum, Serafina Meatpacking, or any other nearby restaurant. After lunch, it is time to tour the High Line with Executive Director Jay Johnston. The High Line offers an appealing view of the area surrounding Manhattan’s once raunchy Meatpacking district, now a gentrified and glorified high-living, high-fashion and high-culture Tribeca neighborhood. After the post-lunch High Line stroll, the bus will take us to Battery Park and One World Trade Center Plaza for a two-hour visit. Be ready for a 6:30 p.m. bus pickup at Battery Park for a leisurely ride home with a light dinner and beverages served on board.
The price for this 501(c)(3) fundraising excursion is $100, which includes Museum admission and a light dinner. Payment is due no later than Thursday, August 6, 2015. We will accept payment in cash or check.
