Stuck in NYC after the storm? Ideas on what to do

Jump to last reply

For the benefit of tourists who might be in NYC October 31st and following days, maybe we can compile a list of what's open.

City buses have started running on a limited schedule.

Unfortunately the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade has been canceled. That was to be expected

If I was a tourist here in the next few days, I'd try to get in touch with or just walk over the the studios where some my favorite shows are taping. If they're back to taping, they must have vacancies due to all the out of towners who can't get in to NYC, and the locals who rely so much on the subways. If you're staying in midtown, you may get lucky! I imagine there are also cancellations for many sold out Broadway shows.

Here are some other lists of what's open in different neighborhoods. Add other information and websites that you find!

The Met museum may reopen on Wednesday http://www.metmuseum.org/

"New-York Historical society will reopen Wednesday: 10-6 with pay-as-you-wish admission for Hurricane Sand relief."

The New York Times started some lists today ,but hopefully the updates tomorrow will be more encouraging
