Mike and I are very happy that we will be returning to New York City to be part of the 2017 Arabian US Open show in Central Park! It seems like the perfect time to share our experiences from last year.
Welcome to "the City" and the NYC traffic! Challenging to navigate with a car! Horse trailers? Wow! In 2016 it was especially congested because the United Nations General Assembly was meeting at same time!
From the Essex Hotel, the Central Park entrance closest to Wollman Rink is called the Artist's Gate. It's a short walk up and across 59th Street from the hotel and right away you're sort of in "horse country" because this is where a statue of General Jose de San Martin is located. Hmmm. Why is it called the Artist's Gate? Click here to find out!
