Other vendors include NYC favorites like Roberta’s Pizza, The Halal Guys, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Taqueria Diana, Fan Fan Doughnuts, and more.

You can check out the cocktails and DJ sets at Casa Bacardi; take photos at the Snapchat AR Photo Tower; get your makeup done at the About Face Beauty Shop; grab a glass of wine or frozé at the Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Lounge; and sip on spritzes at the Aperol Spritz Piazza. Check out more experiences here.
