NYC LIFE: Fall Happenings from the Catacombs to the Vineyards
Fall is here, one of our favorite times in NYC. We have a few tickets left to our 3T September events – our film screening event on Sept. 26 – and our annual wine trip to Long Island’s North Fork Vineyards on Sept. 30th. Don’t miss out. Fall is a good time to sight see in your own city. Here are a few highlights of fall to dos.
Candlelight Catacomb Tours of Old St. Patricks
Now here’s something cool to do this fall. Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral (Mulberry Street between Prince and Houston) recently started offering tours to its historic forgotten catacombs, the final resting place of many notable New Yorkers. The tours are led by candelight and you take a 200-year trip through New York history. Tours are daily at 11 am, 1 PM, and 3PM. $35. Get the details.
Head Up to the Top of the World
The Freedom Tower is now open and should definitely be added to your fall must do list. Friends of ours took the tour this summer and are still raving about it. You’ll be whisked to the 102nd floor in 47 seconds for spectacular views, an amazing theater experience, the Sky Portal that lets you stand on a disc and see the streets below you. And you can top it off with a cocktail and lite bites too. You can buy tickets in advance for specific dates and times, so no waiting. Get the details.
Last Weekend for the San Gennaro Feast
In the mood for meatballs, sausage heroes, cannoli’s and other Italian goodies? Then head to Mulberry Street in what’s left of Little Italy for the last weekend of 92nd Annual Feast of San Gennaro. Enjoy live music, cooking demonstrations, and of course the procession of the statue of San Gennaro. Get the details.
Our friends at Next Tribe are singing our song. Join them at their first event in New York City on how grownup women are re-shaping our culture and expressing their rightful power. Speakers include Judy Collins (via video) and in person Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and aging activist Ashton Applewhite among others. You’ll enjoy wine, a signature cocktail and networking. Hope to see you there. Sign up before 9/26 and get tickets for $25.
Oct. 10. Let’s Change the Future for Girls
Please join the head tomato and other members of the NYC Leadership Council as we celebrate International Day of the Girl in support of Plan International USA’s “Because I am a Girl” programs. Too often, girls are prevented from realizing their rights like learning, leading, and deciding when and whether to marry and have children. They are silenced and excluded from the choices that shape their futures. But together we can change that. The evening includes a wine reception, food, a fab silent auction, and an inspiring program. Get the details.
