You’ll find ways to celebrate with all your loves this month, whether that’s your best gal pal, your romantic flame, your furry friend, your adorable child, or your fabulous self!
This One’s For The Girls: February 2nd-24th
This One’s For The Girls is a high-energy musical, celebrating women, featuring classic popular songs like I am Woman, Respect, Stand by Your Man, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, These Boots are Made for Walkin’, I Will Survive, and Greatest Love of All.

Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show: February 12th-13th

February brings the perfect event to celebrate everything furry with the 142nd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. With both daytime and evening events, there’s plenty of selection to score a ticket that fits your schedule. Best-In-Show (the most popular part of the event that is televised) will be taking place at Madison Square Garden, which is an easy walk for Glenwood residents living in the Emerald Green building.

Romance Under The Stars: February 14th
Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History is hosting a Valentine’s event that promises to be a good one: Romance Under the Stars!
While it may be too cold in NYC to stand in Central Park this time of year and star gaze, the planetarium has you covered with shelter, live jazz by the Josh Rutner Quartet, an open bar, chocolate galore, hors d’oeuvres, and a view of the stars complete with love stories based on mythology. There are two events, one at 6:30pm and the next at 9pm, and tickets are $125, available on their website.
Glenwood residents of Hawthorn Park will find this incredibly easy to get to!
