This past weekend, I visited the sprawling 250-acre New York Botanical Garden for their Orchid Evenings event, part of their annual Orchid Show.

High above midtown Manhattan, I got a panoramic view of New York City earlier this week at Top of the Rock.

The 11th annual New York Times Travel Show this Saturday and Sunday (March 1 and 2) is sure to be a good one, with nearly 500 exhibitors representing more than 150 countries.

This Valentine’s Day, the busy Midtown streets will be buzzing with romance at LOVE in Times Square. Grab your Valentine and head to the Crossroads of the World for love-inspired attractions, deals and artwork.

Contrary to popular belief, a “salon” isn’t just a place for pampering; it also refers to a periodic gathering of people of social or intellectual distinction. However, in the 21st century, if you were to say the word, chances are pretty good people would think you’re referring to the former rather than the latter. If you’re looking to be intellectually stimulated—and can save the pampering for another day—head to the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop tomorrow for its free Salon Thursdays program.

Newark is gearing up for the Super Bowl with several events leading up to game day.

American author and photojournalist Eudora Welty once said, “A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” I wholeheartedly believe in that statement, which is why I jump at the opportunity to visit museums and galleries that display works in that medium.

As you probably already know, Super Bowl XLVIII is headed to New Jersey next month, which means the whole city is gearing up for the big game.

With four floors of educational exhibits, Liberty Science Center provides hours of family fun. Now through March 2nd, football fans can explore Gridiron Glory, a display of NFL memorabilia that includes jerseys, balls, historic documents and more. You can even try on helmets and padding like those worn by players. Nearby, you can also learn some of the training moves football players use to practice at Training Camp.
