The holidays are upon us, and you are probably not yet finished shopping (or, if you are me, not really started).
In the midst of this holiday season, you can enjoy free parking downtown now through December 25th as well as the convenience of shopping two minutes from your home.
Please find attached a one-sheet flyer describing all the many shopping opportunities downtown. It's always more than you remember. Take a look, and consider closely your options. I find you can cover a significant part of your shopping list downtown, supporting our stores and keeping our merchants in business.
It's also the season to eat out and enjoy the many restaurants we have downtown. Many are still hurting from Sandy (Comfort has closed and not reopened yet) and they would appreciate your business. Rainwater has a new chef (so good), Tony's serves a mean set of Portuguese fish dishes, Sakura knocks it out of the park, New China will deliver, Slices and Pizza Grill compete for your pizza dollar and do a fine job of it, there's the Center Diner for a classic breakfast, the outrageous Juniper, tasty Taiim, our favorite pub Maud's, the killer Buffet de La Gare and the delightful Harvest on the Hudson which bounced back from two feet of water and still remains excellent. They deserve your patronage and deliver satisfaction.
All the best to you and your family in this season of light.
