Things To Do In September
September is often thought of as “the other January” (minus the terrible weather, of course!) With the first day of September comes thoughts of going back to school, getting supplies and new clothes ready, and generally preparing for the fresh year ahead! With the start to a new school year, we encourage you to fill your calendar with fun things to do around NYC…we’ve rounded up five of our favorites below. After all, this could be the year that you dedicate to making the very most out of this beautiful city you call home!
County Fair On The Hudson: September 9th
Just because we live in one of the largest cities in the world doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little county fair action! On September 9th, the West Side County Fair is coming to Riverside Park South and West 70th Street. This family friendly event will feature carnival rides, live bands, games, sideshows, aerialists, and plenty of food vendors. Admission is free!
Another perk to this event? It’s supporting Grow NYC’s Stop ‘N’ Swap program. You’ll be able to bring clean, reusable, portable items (think: clothes, games, books, toys, or small homegoods) so somebody else can take them home with them (for free!) and give them a second life. And of course, you can pick up anything that would serve a purpose in your Glenwood home, too! Talk about helping the environment and a neighbor at the same time. Residents at Hawthorn Park will love the close proximity.
Luxury Living at Hawthorn ParkGlenwood's spacious apartments are simply enhanced by upgraded kitchens, outdoor living areas, state of the art fitness centers, and recreation areas. Browse available units of Hawthorn Park today.
The Feast Of San Gennaro: September 13th-23rd
Spanning a few weeks in September is the annual Italian street fair, The Feast of San Gennaro, which has been going strong since 1996. This Downtown event features live music, parades, ethnic foods, and plenty of eating contests. What could be better than eating your weight in cannoli and meatballs?! The festival is free, family friendly, and takes place in Little Italy between Grand and Mott Streets.
Museum Day Live: September 22nd
On September 22nd, join the fun for Museum Day Live. This event allows you to reserve a free ticket for two people to visit a NYC museum, absolutely free! This is a great way to take advantage of visiting a museum that otherwise would cost $25 a head (thus saving your $50!). NYC highlights include the Intrepid Air and Space Museum on the Westside, Cooper Hewitt, and the Asia Society and Museum on the Upper East Side. For a list of participating spots (and there’s plenty!), visit their website.

Sip For The Sea: September 27th
Do something good this month, while having a truly unique NYC experience. The Central Park Zoo is having an event called Sip For The Sea on September 27th from 6:30 to 9:30, which is a benefit for the NYC aquarium. The tickets start at $200, and will get you pairings of sustainable wines with seafood and hors d’oeuvres, an evening of live music, and the knowledge that you’re helping the Wildlife Conservation Society do what they do best. The event is for 21+, making it a great date night under the stars, or a fun event to get dressed up for to spend a night on the town with friends. Glenwood residents living on the Upper East Side, specifically at The Fairmont, will love the ease of walking here.
Little Red Lighthouse Festival: September 29th
This may be a shock, but did you know that NYC has a lighthouse?! In fact, the Little Red Lighthouse, situated on the Westside under the George Washington Bridge, is the last remaining lighthouse for the island of Manhattan. This year, they will be hosting a free festival to honor this NYC gem, which will have tours of the lighthouse, live music, and plenty of food vendors. The event will happen September 29th from 12 to 4pm.Tweet
