10 Things to do NYC this Fall 🍁

During my trip to New York in the Fall, I focused on the most important thing, what to do in the Fall!

You can watch my Top 10 here:

1: Go hiking in a park:

Socially distant hike in local park or Central Park.

Go in the middle of the weekday for a socially distant hike. 

2. Visit a Cemetery:

Trinity Church is where Alexander Hamilton is buried.

Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery is the final resting place of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Leonard Bernstein, and “Boss” Tweed, among many other New York notables. Once a Revolutionary War battlefield, this sprawling, 478-acre cemetery is home to notable figures.

3: Eat the New York Classics:

Because of NYC Open streets programs, tons of restaurants are open and serving meals alfresco. Pizza, bagels, Italian, etc are all available.

4: Farmers Market:

Search GrowNYC to see closest location!

5. Pumpkin Picking on Staten Island:

Since the pumpkin picking at the farm is all outside, it’s easy to keep your social distance from the rest of the farm-goers.

6. Parades:

Greenwich Village Halloween Parade is on Oct 31.

And don't forget Macys Day Parade, it's not cancelled, but will be modified.

7. Cross the Brooklyn Bridge

Free and less crowded than normal.

8. Visit Top of the Rock:

Observe NYC from a bird’s eye POV. It’s 3 different levels, the viewpoints are very spacious and in open air, plus they only allow a certain amount of people in each hour. When we were there, there were only 6 other people on the whole 3 levels of the top of the rock.

9. Have a Drink:

Pumpkin Beer at local breweries, like Brooklyn Brewery.

Or have a Cocktail on a rooftop or outdoor space.

10. Stream an Off-Broadway show

The Public Theater streams archived shows on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
