Explore NYC

Where do we begin? With the ball dropping over Times Square every New Year’s Eve or opening night on Broadway? The Rangers, Knicks, Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. Toy fairs, marathons and a giant Snoopy floating high above the cheering crowds of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

Positioned at the intersection of culture and commerce, if it’s happening in NYC, it’s happening just moments from The London NYC.

2016 US Open

The US Open, by far the nation's biggest tennis tournament, returns to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center August 29 through September 11. The Grand Slam event brings together the world’s best players along with great food, kids’ activities and musical performances, and draws fans from around the globe. Novak Djokovic, the defending men’s singles champ, will be back to try to retain his title. Last year’s victor on the women’s side, Flavia Pennetta, retired; regardless, Serena Williams will be favored to capture another championship. And for tickets, visit ticketmaster.com.

Metropolitan Opera Summer HD Festival

Opera's biggest stars get their close-ups on the big screen during the Met's annual HD Festival. Held outdoors in Lincoln Center Plaza, the free festival brings back 10 productions from the Met's Live in HD simulcast series. Thousands of seats are set up in the plaza, but they do fill up, so it's worthwhile to grab a good one well before the 8pm start time. Visitmetopera.org for the full schedule and information.

Alexander Hamilton: Striver, Statesman, Scoundrel

With all the press around the musical Hamilton, it's hard to believe that Alexander Hamilton was once a forgotten founding father—never becoming President and not living to see 50. This exhibit, drawn mostly from the library's collection, explores his background: fighting alongside Lafayette during the Revolutionary War, condemning Jefferson's stance on slavery while marrying into one of New York's most prominent slave-owning families and helping develop the fledgling nation's new financial system. Among the highlights on display is a copy of Hamilton's draft of George Washington's Farewell Address, dated August 10, 1796. For more information, visit nypl.org.
