Cat Jennings, TopView’s PR and Social Director, comments: “Our creative team is excited to reveal this new Halloween and Fall line up to our popular suite of experience offers. The Fall is a special time to experience New York City and we were keen to give New York locals and guests something special this year that they can not get from any other tourism brand. We wanted a fun-filled itinerary which is as diverse as New York so that we can meet a variety of needs and interests.
