We look forward to again adding value to a season pass as a way to reward our most loyal fans with year-round savings while also celebrating the relationship between NYRA and the local community.”

The program was tremendously well-received by our members, shoppers and guests last year, and we look forward to making it even better in 2017. We hope to be able to work with NYRA on more projects in the future to help market our downtown retailers, restaurants and professional service locations.”
