It's #GivingTuesday: Donate Toys & Food for the Holidays

GivingTuesday

“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.” Today, December 2, 2014, people all over the world celebrate generosity, and the gift of giving. Watersiders can get in on the charitable action without leaving the complex by donating to the City Harvest Food Drive and the Waterside Holiday Toy Drive. Help us make the holidays a little bit brighter for those in need.

City Harvest helps feed nearly two million New Yorkers who face hunger every year.

We are also collecting new and unwrapped gifts for children receiving treatment and the children of adults undergoing treatment over the holidays. The toys are distributed to a variety of Beth Israel clinics, not just as gifts, but for use in waiting rooms. The need for toys this year is very great. You can bring your gifts until December 11 to the Management Office (30 Waterside Plaza; M-F 9AM-5PM), the Swim & Health Club (35 Waterside Plaza; M-F 6AM-10PM/S-Su 8AM-8PM), and the Community Center (40 Waterside Plaza; M-F 10AM-4PM).

 

 

The Best Pop-Up In Town, the Union Square Holiday Market Is Now Open!

Shoppers at Union Square Holiday Market/urbanspacenyc.com

New York City has several of everything, including pop-up holiday shops, but we’re going to go ahead and say the Union Square Holiday Market is the one not to miss (and not just because we can walk there from Waterside)! With over 150 local as well as national vendors, selling everything from family-recipe French truffles to jewelry made from real flowers, the Union Square Holiday Market has that quality we really like in NYC: personality for days.

The Union Square Holiday Market is open November 20 – December 24, 2014, but we recommend you go before the last-minute holiday shoppers descend so you can spend time strolling among the twinkling, red-and-white aisles, taking in the holiday spirit and probably some freshly sugared mini-doughnuts because who could resist? Also go by on a weekday night to best avoid the crowds–every kind of handmade, fair-trade, small-batch ware in art, jewelry, food, home decor, and gifts for men, women and children will be available for your browsing pleasure. The market is open Mon – Fri 11am–8pm, Sat 10am–8pm and Sun 11am–7pm.
