No matter what you’re interested in, there’s bound to be something in the Big Apple that’ll catch your eye! Here’s a quick look at just a few of this weekend’s things to see and do here in NYC.

Ice Skating

Take a few moments to go ice skating this weekend at one of the city’s many rinks. Iconic ice skating rinks at Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park and Central Park have been wintertime favorites for many years, but lesser-known rinks abound as well such as the Aviator Sports & Events Center in Brooklyn and the City Ice Pavilion in Queens.

Known/Unknown: Private Obsession and Hidden Desire in Outsider Art

This event features more than 100 artworks created by self-taught artists. A must for art fans, this fun and fascinating event takes place at 233 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and runs from 10AM to 9PM on Saturday and from 10AM to 8PM on Sunday.

Super Bowl Snacks

Get in the Super Bowl spirit for Super Bowl LI this weekend by munching on some great snacks and drinks at the Artists and Fleas Market’s “Super Bowl Snacks” festival at 70 N. 7th Street in Brooklyn. For a fun (and filling!) way to prep for the big game, you don’t want to miss this!

Watch Super Bowl LI

Watch Tom Brady and the New England Patriots take on Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons this weekend at one of the city’s top bars or restaurants. Just a few worth considering include Slate at 54 West 21st Street in Manhattan, Clinton Hall at 90 Washington Street in Manhattan, Boulton & Watt at 5 Avenue A in Manhattan and many others!

Explore the City’s Historical and Cultural Gems

Football not your thing? Don’t worry, it’s not like NYC has a lack of cultural and historical attractions to visit. Just a few of these include Federal Hall, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel in Lower Manhattan as well as the city’s acclaimed museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum and the American Museum of Natural History.
