What’s going on in NYC this weekend? We’ve got a few good ideas:
We love the Tribeca Film Festival because it embodies what it really means to be New York. This weekend, there are a ton of screenings and events that you won’t want to miss. Personally, I plan on seeing a few films this year, but I’m not sure which ones yet. I’m leaning towards Jack and Diane and Knuckleball, which show this weekend, and then trying for rush tickets to Take This Waltz on Sunday, but I’m sure my plans will change. That’s what’s great about Tribeca; even if plans do change, there are so many films over the next 10 days that I will undoubtedly see something that I love.
Head over to Staten Island (on the free Staten Island Ferry) to experience this year’s St. George Day Festival. Celebrate arts, culture, Earth Day and more on Saturday when two stages will be set full of song and dance. There will be children’s performances, live painting, literary performances, a craft workshop and the traditional Giant Dragon Puppet Show making this year’s festival all the rage. It will be a great day for people of all ages!
Sunday is opening night of A Streetcar Named Desire on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre. See the revival of the Tennessee William’s classic staring Blair Underwood and Nicole Ari Parker as Stanley and Blanche. While Sunday’s opening night is a strictly limited engagement, tickets for Thursday through Saturday are still available for purchase (even though opening night isn’t until Sunday. I know, Broadway can be confusing sometimes).
Here’s the thing about our bus tours: they go everywhere! Not only are they a fantastic way to see and learn about the city, but since we offer hop-on hop-off tours, they also serve as a mode of transportation. Want to see A Streetcar Named Desire? Hop off in Times Square, right next to the Broadhurst Theatre. Have tickets for a film screening? Hop-off in Tribeca. Going to the St. George Day Festival? We drop you off right at the Staten Island Ferry! Experience New York City by enjoying some of our weekend tips, but don’t forget to see Manhattan aboard our famous double-decker buses!
