It’s winter and it’s cold. Two facts as New Yorkers that we know all too well. However, that doesn’t mean you should be hibernating all season long. NYC & Company’s new Winter Outing initiative is designed to remind you to get out and enjoy the greatest city in the world – even in the coldest months. So bundle up and enjoy the city instead of Netflix and chilling. Here’s suggestions for what to do in Meatpacking:
