Things To Do Over Labor Day Weekend in NYC

Things To Do Over Labor Day Weekend in NYC

Did you know NYC has free outdoor pools? They close up for the season on September 8th. The Tony Dapolito Pool, also known as the Carmine Street pool, has been a staple in the West Village for decades. The pool itself is pretty standard, but what makes it special is the wall-encompassing Keith Haring mural that overlooks it. The Hamilton Fish Park pool on the Lower East Side park was overhauled in 1936, the intention was to make the Olympic-sized pool its main attraction. Did you know the Central Park rink in the summertime is transformed into an outdoor pool. Admission is free.

Governors Island has extended hours on Friday (with the last ferry back to Manhattan leaving at 10 p.m.), and the NYC Unicycle Festival is taking over the island on Saturday and Sunday. It’s also open on Labor Day for a fun filled picnic with friends.

Coney Island’s summer-long fireworks are on displays is this Friday. The Coney Island Museum is open from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.) So add to that waves, hotdogs and carnival rides and make a day of it.

The Hester Street Fair returns Saturday with its Lobster & Beer Party. Vendors will be serving everything from Maine-style lobster rolls, Cajun seafood bars and lobster hush puppies. Beer will be provided by New Belgium Brewing Company.

From 46th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues there will be lots going on, especially Sunday, September 1, for Brazilian Day. This annual festival celebrates the country’s Independence Day. Expect live performances, dancing, and plenty of food.

New York City’s annual West Indian American Day Carnival, is held in Crown Heights in Brooklyn. History, culture, music, food, and of course a parade. It all happens Monday, September 2, beginning at 11 a.m.
