Things to Do in New York In September
September 2020 in New York is full of events. Amazing concerts, Broadway continues to amaze with all kinds of shows, from classics - such as The Phantom of the Opera - to new performances. Have fun visiting sports events in New York - US Open tennis tournament, baseball, hockey, American football. September is a great month to visit New York - it is not too hot anymore, and the weather is just beautiful, with many sunny days.
Feast of San Gennaro
The San Gennaro festival takes place during the first two weeks of September in Little Italy. It is one of the oldest festivals in New York. Streets are decorated in the colors of the Italian flag. Little Italy’s restaurants roll out the red carpet for their visitors, and hundreds of street vendors offer souvenirs, clothing and even jewelry. See the festival program online.
New York Fashion Week
Fashion Week is held twice a year in New York City. A collection for next year's fall is presented in winter, and spring’s collection is shown in September. The New York Fashion Week opens the world series of Fashion Weeks, followed by London, Paris and Milan. Interestingly, the first Fashion Week was held in New York City. In 1943, since the usual runway shows could not continue in Paris because of the war, it was decided to organize a series of shows and combine them into a week-long event for the industry in New York City.
