“Winter is Coming” is a label line with a well-known show that means bad warning, here in West New York it means the exact opposite. We’re happy to have so many winter activities to do, whether it’s downhill on the slopes of the Chestnut Mountain, to the pole vault, or on a motorcycle ride, or hockey. There really is something for everyone.
