The Weekend in NYC: Go to space on the Intrepid

Each weekend, we like to tell you what’s up in New York.  This way, when you finish your bus tour or you’re just hopping off, you’ll know what to do.  Here’s what’s happening this weekend in New York City:

Intrepid SpaceFest

Yesterday the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum opened up its Space Shuttle Pavilion featuring the Enterprise, which many of you will remember making its journey into the harbor.  SpaceFest is a 5-day festival focused around the pavilion, and by all accounts it is awesome!  NASA is on hand all weekend providing exhibits and demonstrations suitable for guests of all ages, and on Friday you can even watch Star Trek from aboard the ship itself.  Anyone who is into space exploration won’t want to miss this event.

Soccer at Yankee Stadium

Baseball’s (New) Cathedral has hosted plenty of sporting events since it opened in 2009.  There are 80+ baseball games played each year, it is home to college football’s Pinstripe Bowl, and now we can add professional soccer to the list.  This weekend, European Champion Chelsea FC will take on Paris Saint-Germain in a friendly as part of the World Football Challenge.  It’s fun that the stadium that hosts the world’s top baseball team will now play host to the world’s top soccer team as well.

Block Party!

The New Museum will be hosting their 6th annual block party this Saturday at Sarah D. Roosevelt Park.  The party begins at noon and is free to all.  Once the bash comes to a close, head over to the New Museum where you will receive free admission for the day.  This sounds like lots of fun with activities for comers of all ages.
