By October 5, 2012

Follow me on:

  • Open House New York -- Get a free inside look at some of New York's most significant architectural and design sites during Open House New York weekend. Enjoy rare opportunities to tour New York landmarks and hear presentations from top architects. Just be prepared to wait in line at the most popular stops. It's usually worth it.
  • Autumn Crafts on Columbus -- Starting this weekend (and continuing on October 13 & 14 and October 20 & 21), the sidewalk outside the American Museum of Natural History will become a marketplace for 100 craft artisans, designers, painters and photographers from across the nation.
  • Butterflies Return to the American Museum of Natural History -- The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter returns to the American Museum of Natural History this weekend for the exhibit's 15th year. Visitors can mingle with up to 500 colorful butterflies fluttering among tropical flowers in the 80-degree Conservatory.
  • Opening Weekend for Picasso Black and White at the Guggenheim -- The fall exhibition Picasso Black and White opens at the Guggenheim this weekend with extended Sunday and Monday hours. It's the first major exhibition to focus on Pablo Picasso's lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette throughout his career, represented in 118 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper
  • NYC Columbus Day Parade -- Thousands of marchers and more than a million spectators are expected for New York's annual Columbus Day Parade on Fifth Avenue on Monday.
  • More New York Street Fairs and Festivals -- It's still street fair season in New York City, but not for much longer. Enjoy the fall weather at several street fairs and festivals around New York this weekend -- including a Korea Day parade and festival and a Deepavali celebration.
