City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

When you hear the names Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez and Patrick McMullan, you think fashion. But when you add Susan Sarandon, chef Art Smith and David Barton to the mix, the connection is less apparent,

You can thank David Barton for bringing all of these people together for a great cause this holiday season. DavidBartonGyms is hosting their 8th Annual and largest Toy Drive to date at the newly opened Astor Place fitness center.

In order to contribute, all guests should bring an unwrapped toy, to be donated to the Metropolitan Hospital, St Vincent’s Hospital, St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, Sunny Downstate, Kings County Hospital, Beth Israel Hospital, the Lower East Side Girls Club, Northeast Community Center and Astor Kids, among others.

Though we’re a bit out of the loop on this season’s hottest toy, we’re definitely going to have fun visiting the nearest toy store to pick something out!

What: DavidBartonGym 8th Annual Toy Drive
Where: DavidBartonGym Astor Place, 4 Astor Place (Between Broadway and Lafayette)
When: Monday, December 21st 9pm-12am
