Julia Rhee shares “RIGHT ON TIME FOR SUMMER, THE WORLD TRADE CENTER CAMPUS TURNS UP THE HEAT WITH FUN-FILLED FESTIVITIES”
To welcome back visitors and workers to Lower Manhattan, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has teamed up with Westfield and other community partners to bring a series of summer festivities to the World Trade Center Campus.
As COVID-19 restrictions have loosened and vaccination rates increase throughout the region, the campus will feature a wide range of in-person activities including musical performances, food bazaars, art installations, and colorful lighting displays.
“This summer will be one of the best times to visit the World Trade Center because of an array of new activities for families, including musical performances and excellent dining wherever you turn,” said Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole. “We’ve had over a year of challenges, but the programs offered this summer are a way to celebrate our comeback.”
“The Port Authority wants to welcome back our visitors, tenants, employees, and community members with robust programming that delivers a world-class experience,” said Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton. “The diversity of events and activities is designed to reflect the variety and creativity that has made our region one of the most popular destinations in the world.”
“The Westfield World Trade Center Campus is thrilled to introduce a series of experiences and community-driven events for Lower Manhattan to enjoy. Guests are invited to indulge in making fun and memorable moments, just in time for the warmer summer months ahead. From live entertainment to colorful Instagrammable moments, there will be new touch points for visitors to rediscover,” said Marco Maldonado, General Manager at Westfield World Trade Center.
The summer programs and events at the World Trade Center campus provide exciting dining options and celebrate art and the culture of our region. Additional events and family-friendly activities will be added throughout the summer. For more information, visit the World Trade Center website.
