NYC Events & Activities for this Weekend

It’s July. It’s hot. It might just storm all weekend, but there are still plenty of fun activities happening in NYC to enjoy your end of the week.

Subway Series


If you’ve never experienced New York baseball before, this weekend is the perfect time to view the best of both the Yankees and Mets (debatable), as they face each other in a Subway Series this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Yankee Stadium. These games are sure to bring out some of the more passionate fans, but you’re sure to have a great time even if you don’t know a thing about baseball.

Have a Library Card? Visit a Bunch of Museums for Free!
