As it usually happens Labor Day caught us completely off guard.
With all “back to school” rush and preparations, we can hardly find some time to review our wardrobe. Not to mention plan a 3 day weekend.
So, as most of us (parents) you ended up staying in New York? Wellcome to the club. And don’t get too upset. We got you covered.
I bet, like any New Yorker you haven’t really seen some of these attractions. Sometimes we’re too snobbish. Yeah.

3. Tugboat Race
Well, why not? Kids are going to worship you! No, really. And we promise, this will be fun!
A line-toss contest or the Popeye-inspired spinach-eating contest. Or just hop on a Circle Line spectator boat at Pier 83.
Hudson River Park, Pier 84

4. Public Works: Twelfth Night
One more musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night created in collaboration of Kwame Kwei-Armah and diverse communities across New York. Definitely a must experience.

5. West Side County Fair
Good old fashioned county fair. Cotton candy, popcorn, games, live bands and lots of homestyle food. Definitely not to be missed!
