Take A Walk On The Wild (West) Side

Springtime in NYC is a great time to visit one of the many famous city parks.  The CHEP conference happens to be just across the street from Washington Square Park, which is great for people watching or just lounging about.  Those wishing to venture further afoot, however, can find one of the most unique and rewarding parks in the city, running just over their heads up the west side.  The High Line Park opened in the Summer of 2009 on the site of a 1930’s elevated railway line that had been lying moribund and slated for destruction since the 1980’s.  Today, the park offers the casual stroller surprises around just about every corner, from unique views of the west side and the Hudson River, to alluring public art and state-of-the-art sustainable gardens.  The park is open daily from 7am-10pm and the closest access point is a short cab ride away on Gansevoort at Washington St.  Check it out and bring your camera!

Anchors Aweigh NY!

It’s mid-week at CHEP and, for some reason, you seem to be noticing groups of sailors, decked out in their crisp service uni’s, out and about everywhere you turn.  The product of your overactive imagination?  Hardly!  It turns out that this year’s CHEP coincides with NYC Fleet Week, a big event in the city for most of the past three decades.  The tall ships will be out in force as thousands of Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard sailors descend upon the metropolis.  This will be a big year, in particular, as Fleet Week commemorates the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, the last time a dispute with our British brethren got a wee bit out of hand.  For our guests coming in from the UK, we promise you’ll get a much warmer welcome this time!

For information on Fleet Week events and ship tours, check out http://www.fleetweeknewyork.com/
