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 has required some changes.

Things to Do This Week & July 4th Weekend in NYC (6/27-7/4)

“Pop ups, shows, markets, and more things to do in NYC today, this week, and this weekend.

by Ethan Wolff — CityGuideNY

(6/27-7/4) Looking for what to do in NYC this week and weekend? The city continues to bounce back, with many venues dropping their mask and vaccine requirements. Expect a revitalized city this week and this weekend, with new restaurants, festivals, pop ups, and all kind of other things to do in NYC this week.”

Here are just a few of my faves:

New York City is a fantastic place to celebrate the anniversary of America’s Independence. The main event is of course the Macy’s 4th of July free fireworks show, which is celebrating its 46th anniversary. This is the nation’s largest Independence Day fireworks show. It begins at nightfall, 9:20pm or so, but for the best views you’ll want to get situated hours in advance. Get more details on NYC’s 4th of July fireworks here.

The best way to experience the fireworks is aboard City Cruises, with boat rides on the East and Hudson Rivers providing an unforgettable way to celebrate the holiday. While onboard you’ll enjoy chef-prepared menus, creative cocktails, beer, wine, and New York’s most incredible views from the water. Climate-controlled interior and open-air outdoor decks await. Buffet cruises leave from Chelsea Piers for brunch and dinner. For an elegant plated meal, look to City Experiences’ all-glass, European-inspired Bateaux New York. Brunch and dinner cruises feature chef-inspired fine dining, beer, wine, and classic cocktails, and the city’s most impressive views.


For an all-American experience, head out to Coney Island, home of the Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest. The world’s top competitive eaters gather here every July 4th. After a record-breaking performance last year, look for Joey Chestnut to defend his title and add a 15th Mustard belt to his collection. On the women’s side, you can expect less predictability—Michelle Lesco was a first time winner last year after downing 30 3/4 hot dogs. The competition takes place on the corner of Surf and Stillwell.

The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus continues its “Summer of Joy” Flatbed Follies 5 Borough Tour. Custom-built rolling stages showcase everything from high wire to aerial acts to juggling, stilt walking, and clowning. It’s all free, at locations around the city through July 17th.



Central Park has a new oasis within an oasis Roller disco hotspot The DiscOasis has opened, bringing live DJs, day and night skating sessions, and performances. The setting is a glittering new roller rink fantasia installed at Wollman Rink.
