GHSA 2023 Annual Meeting: About New York City

This year, GHSA's Annual Meeting puts attendees directly in the heart of Manhattan at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square! From the bright lights of Broadway to the thriving arts community to the soaring elms of Central Park, the city’s most visited borough is full of exciting things to do and see for visitors of all ages and interests.

Broadway is the focal point of New York City’s performing arts scene. No visit is complete without experiencing the entertainment available in Midtown Manhattan’s Theatre District, where dozens of historic venues stage bold new musicals, long-running hits and fascinating dramas. Other nearby can’t-miss attractions include Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall.

Manhattan is also home to amazing museums. New York's world-class art scene includes such treasures as the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met), the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Guggenheim.

A wide variety of green spaces are spread throughout Manhattan, from the 843-acre Central Park to pocket parks in neighborhoods up and down the island. The Battery, Downtown Manhattan’s largest public open space, is the site of open-air concerts, beautiful gardens and the Castle Clinton National Monument, along with the SeaGlass Carousel, a kid-friendly favorite. In addition to The Battery, the High Line is one of the city’s most popular and distinctive parks, built on a former elevated rail line. With places to sit, patches of grass, seasonal blooms and fascinating architectural features throughout, it’s a great place to relax.

Finally, it’s no secret that New York City is known for its legendary food scene. Whether you’re looking for neighborhood eateries, global flavors or anything in between, it’s easy to find delicious experiences throughout the city, especially Manhattan.
