New York City Events September 2010

NYC September Events and Activities Calendar

Summer is behind and everyone is back to work and school. Football season has begun and the stores are packed with fall and winter clothes. September in NYC is a beautiful time of year to wine and dine outside. The new Broadway season starts and we check the critic’s reviews in anticipation of the hottest new show.

It is the 9 year anniversary of 9/11/01, always a somber day in NYC, and the perfect time to make sure you visit the 9-11 Memorial or World Trade Center Site. Please check sightseeing and holiday hours for Labor Day, Monday, September 6th.

U.S. Tennis Open 2010


August 28-September 12
US Tennis Open
Tickets on sale June 7

This is one of my all time favorite sports events. The Billie Jean King National Tennis Center is one of the nicest sporting venues I’ve ever seen and the crowd is always amazing. Who knows, maybe you’ll catch an 11 hour tennis match this year?

Grounds passes are inexpensive and a great way to see the stars up close and get an autograph or photo with them. The US Tennis Open is a definite don’t miss event in NYC!
