Good Housekeeping



The UFT offer most wonderful trips for retired teachers.  The problem is so many people want to take them, they fill up quickly and more often than not, you get closed out.  A smart retiree realized we didn't need these organized trips to take visit the sites and she arranged our tour of the Good Housekeeping Labs on 57th and 8th.  The Hearst Building, where they are housed is the first green building in NYC.  It is built on top of original. The view from the 29th floor, where labs are located was spectacular.  Above pictures were taken there.


(Sorry for the poor quality of these pics, I only had my little point and shoot camera with me.)
This tour is free, but reservations are needed.  It is given Fridays at 10 and 11:30 and lasts a little over an hour.  The view alone is worth the trip, but the tour was great.  I never realized all that went into the Good House Keeping Seal and now I know it really means quality.

Those trips are filled even before they are published. Can you guess why??? (Hint: Connections).

I did go on a good one--a tour of Jewish Harlem.
