This Sunday, Union Square Partnership is kicking off the holiday season with Picture Perfect Union Square – providing free holiday photos in the Pavilion building in the park’s North Plaza.  Families, couples, and the photo-inclined can sign up to have holiday portraits taken for free.   A photo print out will be provided on-site.  At the event you will also receive link to hi-quality web download (watermark-free) so you can use your photos for holiday mailings.  Did we mention that this event is free for participants?
