What to buy as souvenirs when in New York City for UFC 244 (part 1)

Posted by

UFC 244, an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is going to take place on November 2, 2019, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, the United States. Are you planning a visit to The Big Apple to follow the hot fighting? We have listed here some pretty incredible souvenirs from this city.

“We Are Happy to Serve You” Ceramic Cup

Like the Statue of Liberty or Times Square billboards, the Anthora, or the Greek Deli Coffee Cup, is iconic in New York City and is still a beloved symbol of the city. The cup’s design was created in 1963 by Mr. Leslie Buck, who wanted to create a cup which would resonate with the Greek owners of most of New York City’s coffee shops at the time.

The popularity of the Greek Deli Coffee Cup has dropped over the last fifty years; however, it is still in use and is a symbol of the city which can be spotted in TV shows and movies that are set in NYC like Friends, NYPD Blue, How I Met Your Mother, and Men in Black.

If you’d like to have your own Anthora cup, you can purchase a ceramic version from an NYC gift shop.

Statue of Liberty Figurine

Your trip to NYC is imperfect if you come home without a small replica of Lady Liberty. The Statue of Liberty is one of the most typical icons from NYC, so it is a great idea to bring home a smaller version as a memento of your trip.

It is easy to find one Statue of Liberty Figurine and pick your size and price range at most any gift shop around the city. You can opt for a green foam crown if you’re not in the market for a fragile figurine, which is easier to pack, less worry, and makes you look just like Liberty when you wear it.
