- Meetings & Events
Where do we begin? With the ball dropping over Times Square every New Year’s Eve or opening night on Broadway? The Rangers, Knicks, Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. Toy fairs, marathons and a giant Snoopy floating high above the cheering crowds of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
Positioned at the intersection of culture and commerce, if it’s happening in NYC, it’s happening just moments from The London NYC.
Where else does Snoopy share the sky with Papa Smurf? Why, only at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, of course. Since 1924, this spectacular extravaganza of musical numbers, marching bands and balloons has delighted those lucky enough to see it in person (or the 44 million viewers who watch it on NBC every holiday).
The New York Knicks is one of only two NBA teams that is still located in its original city (the Boston Celtics is the other). This darling of NYC plays its heart out in the most prestigious of sporting arenas: Madison Square Garden. Win or lose, thousands of wildly cheering fans guarantee a raucous Big Apple event.
Are you a hockey fan? Then you’ve landed in the right place to indulge your appetite. Whether you want to watch the Rangers, who have won the Stanley Cup four heart-stopping times, or the Islanders, who habitually have former players elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame, you’re guaranteed a fast-paced, exciting show on ice.
Baseball. It’s as American as apple pie, and nowhere is it more a religion than in New York. The Yankees and the Mets play for different divisions so it’s perfectly acceptable to root for both of them! A word to the wise, though: whether or not you’re a baseball fan, don’t head to a cocktail party without having a vague idea how the season is going. From the spring to the fall, it’s the one conversation everyone wants to have.
