Here are our top 10 plans we know you’ll enjoy this weekend:
It’s officially February—even though from the looks of NYC’s snowless streets it could be spring! And with January (the warmest one in recorded history) behind us, we welcome Black History Month, Valentine’s Day and the continuation of Lunar New Year in February. Find the best plans in NYC for this month all on our February things to do guide here.
Designated as Black History Month, February (in addition to every other month in the year) is a time to honor, recognize and and celebrate the achievements of African Americans throughout U.S. history. Whether you’re looking to have a Black history-inspired meal or explore unmissable exhibits, there’s plenty to do in NYC to commemorate what the month stands for. Discover them here.
After five years in the making, NYC’s very own version of “The Bean” has been completed at 56 Leonard Street. Coming from the same artist, Anish Kapoor, the scuplture is 19 ft in height, 48 ft in length and weighs a total of 40 tons! Read all about NYC’s permanent bean sculpture here.
Clear your schedules for Sunday because Central Park’s beloved Winter Jam will be back for some fantastic winter fun! Test your skills at snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding and more at this free, annual event. Curious how it will happen when there’s no snow on the ground? Gore Mountain actually blows an entire snowfield in the morning at Rumsey Playfield. Learn more about Central Park’s amusing Winter Jam here.
Make the weekend educational with a stop at one (or all if you’re feeling eager) of NYC’s science museums. Take in everything from enormous space shuttles to terrifying sharks, as you learn all about the world around us. Thankfully, NYC’s museums are scattered all across the boroughs so there’s sure to be one near you. Find which science museum to explore in NYC here.
