Here’s where we can help— New York City which is comprised of five boroughs is ripe with opportunities to explore and uncover a host of wonderful experiences, and Saturdays are no exception. In fact, the weekend is the perfect chance to really discover what New York City has to offer, from daytime events to nighttime partying.

Visit the Brooklyn Flea

[241 37th St. Brooklyn, NY]

The Brooklyn Flea in Industry City has ample opportunity to make some great purchases! Set up between 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, Brooklyn Flea is one of the more popular shopping attractions in the city. It features hundreds of vendors of everything from art and jewelry to furniture, antiques, and clothing. This is a must-visit bazaar!

Catch a Broadway or Off-Broadway Matinee

A quintessential New York City Saturday afternoon activity to indulge in would of course be to visit the Theater District and purchase substantially discounted tickets to a Broadway or Off-Broadway show from one of two TKTS ticket discounter locations, in NYC. Here you can purchase steeply discounted tickets for a next day matinee or for a same day evening performance. Tickets, though generally at full price, can also be purchased directly at a theater’s box office. There are also several theaters that hold curbside seat lotteries at steeply discounted pricing for same evening performances, two hours before showtime!

Meander Along the High Line

The railway turned park is yet another excellent option for your Saturday activity needs! Opened in 2009, this urban park, set on an elevated rail line, extends along Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, and has plenty of excellent dining options, art, and other attractions to uncover along the way, at street level.

Free Live Music at BAMcafé

[30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY]

BAMcafé offers free concerts on Friday and Saturday nights, so head on over there for a live music experience. The genres range from pop to jazz and it’s important to show up a little early to get a seat, owing to its popularity!

Explore Central Park

There’s nothing like a lovely stroll surrounded by lush greenery and a serene atmosphere. Head over to Central Park for a little break from the hustle and bustle, and explore the beauty of this incredible and famous park.. Bethesda Terrace, Conservatory Water, Conversatory Garden, the Ramble, Cedar Hill, the Great Lawn, Belvedere Castle, Strawberry Fields John Lennon memorial tribute, and Sheep Meadow are some popular choices!
