Holiday Shopping Guide

As the holiday season quickly approaches, if you are like us at the BID you are wondering “What do I get”  fill in the blank of the person who is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for? Have you been looking at Oprah’s Favorite Things trying to get inspiration for holiday gifts but the shipping times but tired of watching the delivery date on your packages change to a “💁🏻‍♀️” or “🤔” when you finally find the perfect gift?  If they do manage to ship, does your building have a troll living underneath the steps who steals your packages? Well, the easiest way to solve that is to SHOP LOCAL!!!!   

Running in City
  • Stop by Legends Sporting Goods for a personalized jersey.

  • Stop by Closeout Home or Outlet N More or any of our other Home Good stores to see what home gym equipment they may have so you can recreate your own version of the Peloton ad. I’ve seen everything from Surfboards to Rowing Machines! 

  • For the Angler in your life, stop by 5th Avenue Bait & Tackle for a lure that will help make sure they can’t talk about “the one that got away."
