Sep 13, 2022

I urge 2022 Annual Meeting attendees to join us on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26 for a special itinerary visiting nationally and globally recognized attractions that highlight and remember the unique history, architecture, and culture of New York City.

NYSTIA member Hayley Coriaty at One World Observatory has gone above and beyond to provide Annual Meeting Attendees with an offsite excursion package through Manhattan's top attractions at a deeply discounted price! Join us from start to finish or joins us along the way for a great time. (the times below are approximate):

2:00 PM

Hop-On the Big Bus at the NEW YORKER Hotel for a guided tour of some of the most iconic sites of NYC on your way to our first stop.

Don't forget to bring your camera: amazing photo opportunities await from the top deck!

3:30 PM

Explore the 9/11 Memorial & Museum; the country's principal institution concerned with exploring 9/11, documenting its impact, and examining its continuing significance. Hear stories of loss, recovery, and hope, honoring those who were killed in the 2001 and 1993 attacks.

Afterward, pay tribute to those who aren't with us at the Memorial Pools.

4:45 PM

Take in New York City's magical skyline like never before—atop the city's tallest skyscraper!

Whiskey is BACK in Manhattan! The Big Bus will bring you to tour and taste the borough's first legal whiskey distillery since prohibition at Great Jones Distillery.

Transportation back to the NEW YORKER is freestyle - continue your evening in the Big Apple or catch a cab/Uber back to the hotel for more time with your NYSTIA colleagues!
