Shakespeare in the Park – September

by NYJ Team

For over 45 years, the New York Public Theater has been bringing the Bard’s classics to the general public in the form of ‘Shakespeare in the Park’. Every summer, over 80,000 visitors and locals alike are offered the opportunity to see some of the best productions in town – at no charge whatsoever. Over the years, some of the industry’s greatest actors and directors have been part of Shakespeare in the Park, including Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman and Jeff Goldblum. Eight million people in total have watched innumerable shows since the event was first introduced to New York’s rich cultural scene in 1964.

This summer, Shakespeare in the Park offered two of the most popular classics – ??Romeo and Juliet?? – which ran in June and July and ??Midsummer Night’s Dream?? which is running in August and until the 8th of September, 2007. ??Midsummer Night’s Dream?? is one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays, telling the story of four lovers who run from Athens and find themselves in a magical bind following a dramatic fight between the King and Queen of the Fairies, Oberon and Tatiana. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, this production will run from Tuesdays through to Sundays at 8 pm at the famous Delacorte Theater. With a cast of nearly 30 actors, this show promises to live up the excellent standard of previous productions of Shakespeare in the Park.

The Ritz Carlton Central Park and Park Central Hotel are just a few of the hotels located near Central Park.

September in New York City

by NYJ Team

If visitors are looking for a good time to visit New York City, September might be the perfect month to do so. This is the time when the summer visitor crowds have thinned out significantly and children have returned to school. This means that visitors will be free to discover New York without having to battle their way through to see popular destinations. In addition, September is still early enough in the fall to avoid paying the steep prices for hotel rooms that come with the peak travel season.

While most local New Yorkers escape from the city during the summer months to avoid the heat and humidity, September brings with it a coolness that makes it quite pleasant. True, subways and streets may still be uncomfortable in the lingering summer heat, but it is usually pleasant enough to enjoy a walking tour and most evenings are cool enough to even require a jacket. Average highs in September are 76 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius), with average lows being 61 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius).

It is still essential to remember to pack an umbrella for sudden summer showers, as well as a waterproof jacket or sweater for cooler nights in NYC. While most summer activities have ended by now, it is still recommended to pack a waterproof blanket to enjoy sitting on the grass in the parks with a picnic basket in the evenings. As far as foot attire goes, it is probably best to pack good walking shoes, preferably closed and waterproof, for some serious pavement pounding.
