What to Try This Month
Trip of the Week(ender)
Rockefeller Center at Christmas
This week’s “Trip of the Week(ender)” is a visit to Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan (45 Rockefeller Plaza). It’s a national historic landmark home to Top of the Rock Observation Deck, NBC Studios, Radio City Music Hall and much more. Shop, dine and explore at one of New York’s most inspiring locations.
New York City is pretty easy to get to with public transportation. Take the NJ Transit train at the South Orange train station to New York Penn Station just five stops away. Leave Penn Station, by heading towards the 34th Street exit. Below are some helpful travel routes:
- Subway E – Head towards the 34th Street exit. Outside you will see the “ACE” Subway line. Take Subway line E towards Jamaica Center – Parsons/Archer. While riding the Subway, you will want to exit at the stop 5Av/53 St.
- Subway M – Head towards the 34th Street exit. Walk towards 34th Street Herald Square Subway Station – Subway line M. Ride the M towards Forest Hills – 71 Av. You will want to stop at 47-50 Sts – Rockefeller Ctr. Rockefeller Center is just a short walk (0.2 mi – 5 minutes)
- Walk – Head towards the 7th Ave/Fashion Ave/33rd St exit. Continue to follow 7th Avenue towards W 49th St for approximately 0.3 miles. Turn left onto Rockefeller Plaza.

South Orange, NJ
Plenty of Options in the Town of South Orange
Nestled in the suburban village of South Orange, New Jersey, Seton Hall provides small-town charm and big-city opportunities. The University’s suburban 58-acre park-like campus sits proudly within this picturesque town, with tree-lined streets, historic gracious homes, and quaint shops. All just 14 miles from New York City — close to the action, yet not engulfed by it.
