Take Photos with the Easter Bunny In or Near NYC
While you may bump into the Easter Bunny at an egg hunt in the city or on Long Island, or on a New Jersey holiday train ride, getting real face time and a decent photo op with the big rabbit is harder than you might think. (He really needs to a take a cue from Santa!) We went on the hunt, though, and found out exactly where you can get pictures with the Easter Bunny in and around New York City.
The Easter Bunny will be posing at the JC Penney Portrait Studio in Baychester in the Bronx. The time is not yet set, but call them at 718-862-0051 for details. They expect to have the Easter Bunny scheduled by Friday, March 30. You can also snap a picture with one of the studio's little prop bunnies (shown above) anytime through Easter. Give the shop a ring to schedule an appointment and see if you can use these coupons to save a few bucks.
The big rabbit will also be holding court at the Staten Island Mall through Saturday, April 7. Save $3 if you purchase a package by Wednesday, March 28.
Brooklyn's Kings Plaza will host the Easter Bunny March 24-April 7 this year.
In Queens, head to the Queens Center to hang with the Easter Bunny through Saturday, April 7. Save $3 off photo packages through Wednesday, March 28.
Outside the five boroughs, kids can pose with EB at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, Long Island, which is easily accessible via the PATH train. According to the website, the Bunny will be sticking around through Wednesday, April 11, but it's best to call ahead to verify 516-742-8000.
