More To Do
Make a day of it! After the festivities, explore this historic neighborhood: Historic Sights to See in Sunset Park. Alternatively, into a Sunset Park Chinese restaurant for dim sum. Or, if you have children in tow, head to the Prospect Park Zoo to see Herbie the giant rabbit.
Best wishes for the Chinese Lunar New Year! To paraphrase UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon, let us wish for “increased prosperity and well-being in the year to come as we continue to work together for global peace and sustainable development.”
