Say *Goodbye to 2014 with Clifford the Big Red Dog! It’s the time of year where we celebrate the end of the year and look forward to an exciting future. Join us at the Scholastic Store for an extravaganza of FUN! Take photos with Clifford the Big Red Dog, enjoy face painting, balloon twisting, magic tricks and more. Plus, there will be a special reading of Clifford Visits the Zoo. Wear your New Year’s Eve party hats and get ready for a fun afternoon with the amazing Clifford at the Scholastic Store!
* On a personal note, we are sad to report that the Scholastic Store in SoHo will be closing its doors on January 11th. As a parent that was always looking for a fun way to spend the time with my kids, when they were infants and as budding readers, the Scholastic Store was a go-to destination for us. We will miss the great staff, the movie screenings and photo ops with the many characters that my kids have come to love, such as the Power Rangers, Chima and of course, Clifford the Big Red Dog.

South Street Seaport Ice Rink. The outdoor ice skating rink at the South Street Seaport is officially open! There are a ton of options, whether you want to take a spin around the ice once or if you think you’ll be twirling around on the ice all winter long like Dorothy Hamill or Sarah Hughes, then you may be interested in a season pass. Regardless, the option is there for you and your family to spin and sail across the ice, all winter long. Open on Christmas Day from 10a – 10p.
Join us for a special skating event with US Olympic Champion Sarah Hughes and World Competitor Danielle Montalbano.
