A Guide to Cider Week in New York City
Autumn brings certain beverages to the forefront: pumpkin spice lattes, steamy cups of hot chocolate, and of course, cider! To really jump into the celebration of cider season, join in on the annual fall event, Cider Week NYC. Held from October 20th through October 29th, 2017, Cider Week is a time to celebrate craft cider by indulging in tastings, dinners, classes, and more, all throughout NYC. From top restaurants and bars to retail shops, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to indulge in all things cider-centric.
You can find the full lineup of spots participating in Cider Week on their website, but we’ve gone ahead and highlighted our “can’t miss” events below…all conveniently taking place in a Glenwood neighborhood!
To Learn What Cider is, Head to El Barrio’s ArtSpace
On Tuesday, October 24th from 7:30 to 8:30pm, join cider makers Karl duHoffmann of Orchard Hill Cider Mill, John Reynolds of Blackduck Cidery, and Dan Pucci, Pommelier and beverage consultant, for an evening of myth-busting as they present the lecture “What is Cider, Really?” It will be set up panel style, so you will be encouraged to participate in an open discussion, in which the gentlemen will answer questions, comments, even accusations! It’s sure to be the perfect entertaining and educational evening to answer all your cider related questions…and set you up for the remainder of a cider-filled week!
The event will take place at El Barrio’s ArtSpace PS109, located at 215 East 99th Street in the Ground Floor Gallery. Tickets are free, and may be reserved here. This is particularly close if you live in the Glenwood building Hampton Court…right around the corner, in fact!

Murray’s Cheese is located in downtown Manhattan, making it a nice autumn stroll (about 30 minutes) or super quick Uber ride from any of the downtown Glenwood residences.
