New Yorkers: Here is how you get here for the Valley Gala!

I am so ready for my New York friends and family to come out to the Valley for the second annual Valley Gala Sunday January 31st. I really hope a lot of them can come because you know how New Yorkers think New Jersey is like across the country. But here is a quick and easy way to get here via public transportation:

  • New Jersey Transit runs direct from New York Penn Station (West 34th Street) on the weekends so you’ll be able to get right to the Valley Arts District (Highland Avenue)
  • Catch the 7:11pm direct from Penn Station to Highland Avenue and gets you to Hat City Kitchen at 8:00pm
  • On the way back, catch the 10:01pm or 12:01am (midnight) direct train from Highland Avenue back to New York Penn Station.
  • Round-trip tickets are $14.50
