Labor Day in New York
Labor Day in New York
Next Monday, September 4, Labor Day is celebrated. It is one of the largest annual festivities in the United States, celebrating the achievements of workers
The tradition of Labor Day dates to 1882, precisely the origin is in New York where the first parade organized by the Knights of Labor was held, emulating a similar march held in Toronto (Canada). They paraded under the Washington Arch and dozens of women protested against sweatshops and child labor. In memory of these events, the traditional NYC Labor Day Parade is held.
Today Labor Day, or Labor Day Weekend, is seen primarily as the end of the summer season. The truth is that September in New York is still a warm month, with an average temperature of 20ºC and days that can approach or exceed the maximum 30ºC. This makes it an ideal month in terms of weather
In addition, in the US, Labor Day is one of 11 official federal holidays designated by Congress as paid days off for government workers and other private employees. These days, banks, schools, libraries, and most businesses close completely. This makes it the perfect excuse for all New Yorkers to take advantage of the opportunity to organize outdoor events, enjoy barbecues, parties in the parks or a weekend getaway out of the city, in The Hamptons or Fire Island, to give a good closing to the summer season
Although the city can be somewhat quieter, there are many things to do and see.
These are some:
Shopping: The Outlets make a 50% discount on already reduced prices on this day.
Museums: The museums that usually open on Mondays will also be open this holiday Monday, in the case of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Sports: Baseball season is also in full swing at this time, which means the New York Yankees and New York Mets are playing.
West Indian Parade: Without a doubt it is a whirlwind of colors and costumes and joy in which more than three million people come out to celebrate the Caribbean culture where samples of many cultures are welcomed including Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Dominica, Saint Lucia , Grenada, Haiti and even some continental Caribbean countries such as Belize, Guyana and Suriname. It is important to note that there are currently over 600,000 New Yorkers of Caribbean descent.
Each year, more than three million people flock to Crown Heights Brooklyn to celebrate the culture of the West Indies, making it not only the largest Caribbean carnival in the United States, but also one of the largest Caribbean carnivals in the world.
The parade will take place on September 4, 2023 and officially begins at 11:00 a.m. by marching down Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The parade will begin on Schenectady Avenue and end at Grand Army Plaza.
There you can see many singers, dancers and musicians wearing eccentric costumes and feathered heads. It also has many spectacular floats and marching bands.
For the more adventurous, there is a costume contest that anyone can enter to win a cash prize at the end of the parade. The idea is to compete for the funniest and most original costume.
In addition, it is an excellent opportunity to try Caribbean delicacies such as jerk chicken since food vendors crowd the streets offering different typical dishes and drinks.
As a suggestion, it is recommended to plan the trip in advance because, being a public holiday, all trains and buses operate on a special reduced schedule. It is important to know that being a massive event, you will have to be patient as there will be large crowds and lines.
– Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit: For those who prefer a quieter cultural option, in Washington Square you can enjoy an outdoor art exhibition, which is also completely free. From September 2-4 and September 9-10, 2023, the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit, considered one of the most vibrant art fairs in the city where artists and artisans from around the world and New York can be found.
