A quick bite of the Big Apple!

It was a whirlwind visit to New York for GTO’s Peter Stonham and Sarah Jeffery at the beginning of November to attend the second American Group Travel Awards, which GTO began last year with partners HotelPlanner.com.

As well as attending the event itself at the Diamond Horseshoe at the Paramount Hotel, there was a chance to enjoy a lovely evening cruise on the Hudson River plus some shopping for Sarah and a visit to the interesting turn-of-the-century Forest Hills neighbourhood for Peter, where he found a group visit in progress and joined in for some insight into the historic area. Peter also dropped in on the excellent Fashion Underground exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Technology museum, featuring the highly creative styles worn by Susanne Bartsch at events in the 1980s and 90s whilst Sarah enjoyed a performance by the Blue Man Group.
