"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the insider guide and maps. It is exactly what I was looking for and trying to search the internet for weeks and still did not find even a fraction of what you have in your guide. Even something as simple what direction avenues and streets run was not something I thought of or found any information on but is very important. Exactly what I was looking for. Don’t waste your time researching and trying to find all this information online when you can get it in the insiders guide. Wonderfully put together and extremely helpful. Thank you." - Mary Margaret

Reservations open January 9, 2024

Both Winter & Summer Restaurant Weeks were HUGE hits with tons of restaurant choices, so we are thrilled Restaurant Week is returning this winter. The summer program introduced new pricing options ($21, $39, $125), which restaurants offered during meal periods of their choosing (lunch, dinner or both). Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of the year, since love a good bargain almost as much as I love good food. It almost feels like you’re stealing..only you’re not.

Lovingly lovingly ripped off from the film classic, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot has everything that makes a great knight at the theatre, from flying cows to killer rabbits, British royalty to French taunters, dancing girls, rubbery shrubbery, and of course, the lady of the lake. Spamalot features well-known song titles such as "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," "The Song That Goes Like This" and "Find Your Grail" Previews Oct 31, 2023, Opens Nov 16, 2023.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Day NYC

Monday, January 15, 2024.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a national holiday with all public schools, post offices, and government buildings closed. There are many ways to celebrate the great life of this inspirational man, including: Martin Luther King Weekend in Harlem, Martin Luther King Jr. Day Anti-Hunger Serve-a-thon and often, a Central Park Seneca Village Tour.

Insider Guides: Harlem Neighborhood Guide, Central Park Guide

Why is Seneca Village important? West 82nd to West 89th Streets was the largest New York community of African-American property owners before Central Park was built and displaced them. While there isn’t much we can do about it today, we should all take the time to learn the historical significance and add it to the list of NYC’s "never forgets."

Things to do on MLK Day:

Tours Open MLK Weekend and/or Day

Broadway Shows Featuring African American Talent (On and Off Stage)

Hamilton Broadway Musical

Hamilton Broadway Musical2016 WINNER OF 11 TONY AWARDS!

Nominated for 16 Tony Awards (a record!) Hamilton, is the rap-and-hip-hop infused musical about Alexander Hamilton, our most controversial founding father. From orphan, immigrant bastard to George Washington’s top aide, Hamilton rises to the top of the newborn government as he survives the country’s first sex scandal.

MJ the Musical Broadway

MJ is the electrifying new Broadway musical that takes audiences inside the creative process of one of the greatest entertainers in history. Featuring over 25 of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits, MJ allows us to rediscover the man in the mirror.

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

November 18, 2023–January 15, 2024

A dazzling and detailed replica of Manhattan, made entirely from plants, leaves, seeds and bark. There are at least 14 electric trains running in loops around the city, which showcases more than 175 scaled iconic buildings and structures such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, and the Statue of Liberty. The exhibit is great for both kids and adults, and makes an especially beautiful date night with cocktails on "Bar Car Nights" in December. Located in the Bronx, accessible by Subway and Metro North.

Tickets: Holiday Train Show All-Garden Pass (good for Holiday Train Show and grounds 10am-5pm, not for Glow or other evening events)

Just like NYC, twinkling lights go on at night with both city and holiday lights. All NYC landmarks and buildings are created entirely from botanical "ingredients" such as, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, poppy pods, pine cones, berries, mushrooms, nuts, bark, leaves twigs and dozens of other plant parts. Humming along between familiar sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center, large-scale model trains cover a quarter-mile of track to bring life to this traditional holiday landscape. The Holiday Train Show @ NYBG is definitely one of those "not-to-be-missed" and "only in NYC" unique and memory-creating things to do for couples, families and children.
