11 Fun Things to do in New York This September

Summer may be in the rearview, but Long Island never gets the memo about packing it in come Labor Day. September is replete with concerts, art exhibits and restaurant openings—more than enough to satiate your appetite for having THE BEST WEEK!


Catch a show from any of the world’s top designers at New York Fashion Week September 7–14. Queens native LaQuan Smith discusses his line, plus his beginnings and how he’s reeled in celeb clientele. Feeling inspired? Head to Esti’s in Cedarhurst to pick up some of his designs.


Start the week off with an art day. The Jewish Museum’s Amedeo Modigliani exhibit showcases drawings never shown before in the U.S. Down the street, MoMA’s Robert Rauschenberg retrospective delves into the career of one of America’s most barrier-pushing artists.


Catch a matinée along the Great White Way. Our Broadway Fall Preview will point you in the right direction. Then head to the Empire Hotel’s rooftop to catch breathtaking views and a drink that’s equally pleasing to the senses. (Ask for the Empire Sunset, thank us later.)


Attend the opening day of the North Fork TV Festival, a celebration of independent scripted television taking place at the historic Greenport Theatre. While in the neighborhood, catch a delectable seafood dinner across the street at Noah’s.


Vauxhall has been a Huntington staple for a few years now, but see what the owners—and chef—are up to at their new Radio Radio. With a full belly and wild heart, catch LI natives Sunflower Bean performing at The Space at Westbury.


Enjoy one of summer’s last days with delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks on the picturesque lawn of Rogers Mansion. Get home just in time to watch the season finale of David Lynch’s masterpiece Twin Peaks.


Nothing beats a day exploring Long Island’s wine country. Let Communal Vines be your guide through the North Fork’s vineyards. Hop onto lipulse.com to read interviews with the Island’s top winemakers and vineyard owners.
