College Highlights “Uniquely New York” Eventsnyc

Baruch College has just launched the definitive compilation of the city's parades, festivals, games and entertainment. “Uniquely New York” is the newest section of NYCdata, the College's comprehensive data breakdown of New York City, created and overseen by the Weissman Center for International Business in the Zicklin School of Business. Uniquely New York offers the facts, the fun and the history behind such iconic celebrations as the Ninth Avenue Food Festival, the Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue, the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island and the Empire State Building Run-Up. Even lesser-known happenings, like the Beefsteak Party—a men-only exercise in gluttony that originated in Manhattan and Brooklyn in the late 18th century—are given their due. http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/news/nycdata.html
