The Game is back at home this year, so grab your Metro North ticket and head back to New Haven for some football, tailgating, and nostalgia. For those who can’t make it, there are various Game-watch parties that will be happening around NYC, but it’s no substitute for being back at the Yale Bowl!
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the nation’s biggest and most anticipated holiday celebration.

The Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse is an amazing opportunity to tour a historic home that has been outfitted with the work of fifteen cutting-edge designers. A perfect blend of old and new, this showcase features different artists in each room of the 1820’s wood-framed house on Pineapple Street. Yale.NYC will be hosting a private event on October 30th, so if anyone would like to join, let Isil know!
More so than trick-or-treating, Halloween in the City is all about the Village Halloween Parade. The Village’s Halloween celebration is the world’s largest procession in honor of the holiday and sees over 50,000 party-goers every year. Check out the crazy costumes and the re-enactment of the Thriller dance from (my favorite) Michael Jackson’s famous music video.
Our lake house happens to be minutes away from the top orchards in the area, and this time of year that means apple picking. Head up to Warwick to pick apples and enjoy some libations -- our favorite spots are Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery and Pennings Orchard (which includes a beer garden, market, and children’s playground).
This annual Fall event is back with more than 200 locations open for tours. For those who aren’t familiar with Open House NYC, it is a weekend-long event which welcomes the public to historic and architectural masterpieces throughout the city that are usually closed to access. Favorites include Brooklyn Army Terminal, the Little Red Lighthouse, and Woodlawn Cemetery.

Archtober is working in collaboration with over 80 partners, including the Museum of Modern Art, Cooper Hewitt, and the Guggenheim to name a few.
After 57 years, New York Film Festival (NYFF) has remained a mainstay of New York culture.

The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition — the focus of this year’s Met Gala — closes in a few days, so make sure to check it out while you still can! Inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, “Notes on ‘Camp,’” the exhibit explores how irony, humor, parody, exaggeration, and theatricality intertwine with fashion. The exhibit features more than 250 objects, ranging from womenswear, menswear, sculptures, paintings, and drawings that date from the seventeenth century to the present.
