Trip of the Week(ender)!

Calling all Downton Abbey fans! If you love the period piece television show, this is the exhibit for you! Relive the costumes. The sets. Immerse yourself in the world of the post-Edwardian TV show, which showcases more than 50 original costumes, along with Downton Abbey table settings, authentic artifacts and more at this comprehensive exhibition. Located at 218 W 57th St, this exhibit will run through March. Contact the venue for times and tickets.

To get to midtown, take the South Orange train into 34th Street Manhattan, New York. On a beautiful day, the walk to West 57th isn’t really long, but the subway will get you there quickly for a mere $2.75. Take the Q train (it will say heading to 96th St via 2nd Ave) and get off at 57th Street. Walk 0.1 miles (2 minutes) North-West to your destination. You can always plan your trip to the minute with a conventien app like the MTA Trip Planner.
