New York’s Best Fall-Weather Events

Don’t get us wrong – we love the new fall TV lineup, but we’d like to get out of the house before it’s time to unpack our winter coats and snow boots. We’ve got a list of great October events in NYC guaranteed to help you make the most of fall.

1. openhousenewyork (OHNY)
Visit OHNY this weekend, an annual 2-day event that unlocks the city to allow New Yorkers free access to New York’s architectural treasures. Roam SoHo lofts, take a tour of NYC’s manholes, or visit the third, undeveloped section of the High Line Park!

2. BMW Guggenheim Lab
Got ideas on how to improve small-space living? Help rethink notions of comfort and city-life solutions by contributing ideas of your own. The BMW Guggenheim Lab will close after OHNY weekend, so be sure to make a visit before October 16th!

3. Museum at FIT
The Museum at FIT is hosting the “Daphne Guinness” exhibit this fall. It showcases the fashion patroness’ most inspiring designs, straight from her own (overflowing) closet and includes pieces from Alexander McQueen himself.

4. AVON Walk NYC
If you’re looking for something to do, this great event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month gets our vote! We’re especially excited to be donating $1 to Avon Walks for every new “Like” on our Facebook page this week.

5. Occupy Wall Street
If you’re adventurous, passionate, and ready to change the world, consider making a trip down to Zuccotti Park this month to #OccupyWallSt and swap solutions for our nation.

BONUS: Keep Your Eye Out in November For…

Quidditch World Cup
Whether you’re a quaffle-dunking wizard, a sharp-eyed seeker, or an enthusiastic spectator, the Quidditch World Cup on Randall’s Island hosts teams from 27 states and promises us, “Whether you’re a die-hard Harry Potter fan or you’ve never heard of this Quidditch thing, you’ll have an unforgettable weekend.“

Feel like getting out of the city? We’ve got some great ideas for adventures outside Manhattan (leaf-peeping, anyone?). You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for fun things to do and see around New York City!
