Spend This Labor Day Out NY Sightseeing

September 3, 2010

While you're out NY sightseeing this Labor Day, make sure to stop by the Asian Feastival in Queens to eat food like this.

Labor Day may mean the end of summer, but instead of dwelling on this fact, why not get out this Monday and do some good old-fashioned NY sightseeing? Many people have the day off work on Labor Day and if you are one of them, it’s the perfect day to get out on the town. It’s going to be beautiful weather this weekend, so take advantage of the extra day off and have a limo chauffeur you around the city.

Although Labor Day is a U.S. Federal Holiday and schools, banks and post offices are closed, most restaurants, stores and attractions are still open. In fact, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the attractions that stays open on Labor Day as part of the special Met Holiday Mondays sponsored by Bloomberg. After you spend some time browsing the beautiful art works of the museum, why not stop by the Asian Feastival in Queens, happening this Monday 12:00pm-5:00pm. Enjoy 20 of the borough’s restaurants in one place so you can taste a variety of specialty dishes each has to offer.

Don’t feel like spending the day at the Met? Why not have your limo drop you off at the West Indian-American Day Carnival. On Labor Day from 12:00-6:00pm, you can join the expected two-million attendees to watch the parade, complete with dancers in glittery outfits strutting down Eastern Parkway.

After a fun day of NY sightseeing, ask a few friends out for dinner and have your limo driver take you to one of these trendy restaurants that just opened this week. Korzo Haus has Hungarian and Slovakian specialties alongside house-ground burgers. In the mood for something more casual? 4Food allows diners to order unique, customizable burgers with an iPad while a huge “media wall” streams Twitter and Foursquare check-ins.

Whether you’re watching a parade, experiencing new food or browsing a gallery, remember to think about what Labor Day is truly about, honoring all U.S. workers, as we have been every first Monday in September since 1884.
