It’s pretty hot here right now, but we know autumn’s relief is coming…and not too soon. For visitors to New York City, arriving when summer’s crowds start to dissipate, take a look at what’s going to make your visit pretty special.
BROADWAY is almost always at the top of the list. BROADWAY really includes, OFF-BROADWAY and OFF-OFF BROADWAY, so that list is pretty full. Already, “Hamilton” is ruling the “waves.” But there’s a whole slew of openings ahead, and PLAYBILL has it all. Keira Knightly has been lured “across the pond” to appear in the Roundabout Theatre production of “Therese Raquin, ” and Clive Owen will star in Harold Pinter’s, “Old Times.” But there’s so much more to wish for and enjoy along the Great White Way. (Hmmm, not quite white!) OFF BROADWAY can’t wait to start the season, but this link has late-summer performances highlighted as well. OFF OFF BROADWAY takes you to interesting neighborhoods around the city, and that can mean interesting dining as well.
The 53rd New York Film Festival plays no second place to Broadway’s offerings. The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts setting adds to the excitement. AND, if you are staying at PARK 79 HOTEL, you are within walking distance, September 25–October 11. Tickets are comparatively affordable, leaving funds for dining in this beautiful section of the Upper West Side.
Here’ a great link for an in-depth calendar for October’s events in all of New York City, including family events, ethnic festivals, sports. And our local tourist organization, NYCGO, does a remarkable job at bringing all the news together: the street festivals, parades, ethnic productions, children’s events–something for everyone.
And here are the highlights of live theatre for the kids this fall
The Rolex Central Park Horse Show returns this second year, September 23-27. Five days of multi-discipline equestrian sport and performances, ranging from Arabians and Dressage to Hunters and Show Jumping. Tickets are on sale at this time!
Restaurants change menus, the year’s new wines and beers are introduced. Thursday, November 19 join the wine lover celebrations as the new Beaujolais from France is popped and made a fuss over!
Do you love–LOVE–dogs. Mark this date: Saturday, October 3, 11 am — 3 pm The annual I LOVE MY DOG festival in Central Park. Bring your camera–definitely! (Check the website in September for details.)
So close to the Beacon Theatre at Park 79 Hotel, we must introduce the Autumn 2015 highlight performances.
We’ll stop here, though we all know that comes Halloween and Thanksgiving, autumn 2015 will be even more amazing.
