Taking a break from world travels, those crafty DIY-loving hipsters are at 50 Kent all weekend making all kinds of wonderful handmade creations better than you could ever imagine.
Vogue magazine named Brooklyn’s not-so-far-off L-train destination as one of the 15 coolest neighborhoods around the world. Just try to picture those scrawny DIY-loving hipsters sharing coffee spots with the ever-fickle Anna Wintour. Priceless.
The 19th annual collaboration between Joe’s Pub and DanceNow brings together 40 eclectic choreographers and their companies starting tonight, with a special performance on September 13.
Fall weekends are the perfect time for local, nature-filled day trips upstate. Neighboring towns, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow make for an easy 30-minute trip from Grand Central. Tarrytown dates back to the mid-1600’s and its mansions, galleries, farmers market, restaurants and music scene keep it on the map. The Rockefeller State Park has your green space covered and keep your Third Friday free for special events in the town village.
Also a short drive from the train station, visit Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow. It’s a working museum that dates back to 1750, complete with period costumes and endless history schtick. Enjoy nature and great views of the Tappan Zee Bridge and grab lunch at the nearby Bridge View Tavern. For horror fans, the town was made most famous by the Washington Irving classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Around Halloween, the haunted house and local cemetery see more action than a whorehouse.
