Though it marks the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day brings with it beautiful weather and a great opportunity to enjoy a long weekend in a city that has so many leisure activities to offer. Labor Day Weekend 2017 is the perfect time to see a little more of New York, and Lotte New York Palace is the ideal home for your holiday escape. Try having a picnic in Central Park or exploring Manhattan’s unique neighborhoods. Consider a day trip to Brooklyn or the Hudson Valley, the potential for adventure in New York is never ending.
Beat the Heat in World-Class Museums
Spend a weekend exploring the city’s excellent museums, such as the permanent collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art. See sculptor Alexander Calder’s mobiles from the ‘30s in Calder Hypermobility exhibit. Just around the corner from The Palace, don’t miss a trip to the Museum of Modern Art where iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday is being celebrated with an exhibit of his works, on view until October 1.
Enjoy a Meal in a NYC Park
Head to the Cloisters for a meal overlooking Fort Tyron Park in northern Manhattan. For something a bit closer to The Palace, venture downtown into Union Square for The Pavilion, an open-air spot for seasonal American fare. At Manhattan’s southern tip, BlackTail is a Cuban bar serving craft cocktails and traditional food in a decorus space overlooking the New York harbor in historic Battery Park.
