We know the trees haven’t even peaked and it’s not even Halloween yet, but the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center opened this week, and the other rinks are not far behind. Okay back to Fall and Halloween.  The trees will be peaking along the Hudson River and a day cruise is the perfect way to view the glorious foliage. If you have never been to Westbury Gardens on Long Island to see the RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns featuring  hundreds of incredibly carved pumpkins, rush do not wait to get tickets because this sells out fast.
