October NYC Events (10/15) (continued)

Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.
We made it as easy as 1-2-3.

Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
Stay Safe.

===========================================================

Earlier today we covered The Nifty Nine NYCity News Sources and Lower Manhattan history during the Revolutionary War. Now, how about some more useful information.

In the age of Covid-19 this info from City Guide is one of the best sources of info on What’s Happening, even if some are only available in your home, and not in your favorite venue.
