New York Weekend Preview: Music, Must-Sees, and Munchies

It’s Friday, and with the temperature dropping lower and lower in New York, locals are coming in from the cold and warming up across town with New York’s finest events, featuring food, music and world-class exhibits. With so much to do during New York’s late fall season, here are some of the highlights for this weekend.

The Windows At Bergdorf’s Are OPEN!


New Yorkers have a few different traditions to mark the start of the season. One, the first bells of Salvation Army volunteers. Two, The Chirstmas tree lighting in Rockefeller Plaza. And most importantly, three, the unveiling of Bergdorf Goodman’s window settings. The window settings are a time honored tradition for the city, and always create a line wrapped around the block of people eagerly awaiting looking into each framed world of wonder. This year, the theme of the windows is, “To New York, With Love” and will be an homage to some of the city’s greatest cultural institutions, like the American Museum of Natural History, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Museum of the Moving Image, the New York Botanical Gardens, the New-York Historical Society, the New York Philharmonic, and more.

Location: 754 5th Avenue

Tickets To The David Bowie Exhibit Are On Sale Now


Tickets are now on sale for the Brooklyn Museum’s new exhibit profiling the life of David Bowie. Bowie had an incredible impact on music, fashion, art, and culture. Though the exhibit will actually run from March until July in the spring/summer of 2018, its highly anticipated opening will garner several visitors, so it’ll be worth securing tickets as early as possible. The exhibit will also feature several of the costumes, recordings, and artwork from the Star Man.

Location: 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn


Han Dynasty Opens In Brooklyn


With its third location in New York, Han Dynasty has come to City Point in Brooklyn, right alongside DeKalb Market and Alamo Drafthouse, to bring Brooklynites some of the best Szechuan food in the city. The restaurant is situated in one of the go-to areas for locals, which will surely make it a City Point hotspot.

Location: 445 Albee Square West, Brooklyn
