Memorial Day, The New Yorker Way

What better way is there to enjoy Memorial Day weekend other than New York style?
Word of mouth dictates that New Yorkers know how to cater to good times. But, did you know that a research study has listed New York City as the most popular destination for Memorial Day weekend according to the amount of hotel bookings made for the holiday? But what makes New York such a hot spot for the amount of attention and traffic we receive during Memorial Day Weekend? Here’s a small teaser of what to expect during your Memorial Day weekend in New York City. We’ve taken the liberty of checking weather and events so that you spend less time planning your weekend, and more time enjoying it.
New York City is expecting grey skies and some precipitation on Friday and Saturday as we see the small storm we’re expected to receive midweek pass. Sunday ushers in plenty of sun and cool breezes that will continue on through Monday, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors life that New York City has to offer.
For your convenience, we’ve split the indoors and outdoors activities a part.
We wish you all a pleasant Memorial Day weekend!
