The holiday season gets underway at Turnstyle Underground Market on Friday, November 15th through Tuesday, December 31st (for last-minute and late gift-givers!). With 18 seasonal vendors joining the 39 permanent eateries, shops and kiosks inside the bustling corridor, which runs below Columbus Circle at Eighth Avenue, between 57th and 58th Streets, shopping is flawlessly convenient for a third consecutive year. Many of the shoppers coming from the Columbus Avenue subway hub, will again be able to avoid trudging through icy temperatures and inclement weather to find unique holiday gifts at all price points.
“Forget braving snow and cold winds on the street or crazy department store crowds when it’s so easy to hop off a subway and find a huge selection of gift items,” says Susan E. Fine, a principal at Fine Development Partnerships, Turnstyle’s developer. “This year, we have an exceptional mix of fashion for people, tots and pets, jewelry, scented candles, CBD lotions and beyond. For holiday gatherings, there are beautifully packaged confectionaries, wines, spirits and flower bouquets. There are even holiday ornaments for the ultimate in one-stop-shopping!”
