The Best Festivals Coming to NYC in September  

Summer may be coming to a close, but as The Sagamore residents are well aware, this doesn’t mean that it’s time to hibernate indoors – instead, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the cool, fresh air before snow coats the New York City streets.

Now that the beach weather is over, New Yorkers can look forward to some fun things to do that are right outside their doors in street festivals throughout the city.

Check out these three festivals below that are much more exciting than any day you spent beachside this summer.

The Feast of San Gennaro, which is the city’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival, will be held from Sept. 15 to Sept. 25. The 11-day festival features religious processions, parades, free musical entertainment and, of course, scrumptious ethnic meals, sweets and wines to be enjoyed by those of any culture.

The New York Coffee Festival, held in the 69th Regiment Armory, will take place from Sept. 16 to Sept. 18, much to the appreciation of caffeine-loving New Yorkers. More than 70 coffee, food and equipment suppliers will be present to provide coffee tastings, interactive workshops and demonstrations.

The Medieval Festival at the Cloisters, held at Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park on Sept. 18, will take the park back in time as it is transformed into a medieval market full of entertainers and festival goers decked out in traditional garb. Enjoy medieval music, dance, magic, jugglers and jesters – and, of course, a joist – alongside mouth-watering medieval food and drink.

Where to Take Your Dog Near Your Sagamore Apartment  

Your Sagamore apartment may be roomy, however, our four-legged friends often need somewhere to go to stretch their legs, chase some fellow canines and roll around in the sunshine.

Fortunately, there are tons of dog parks near The Sagamore on the Upper West Side, which is known as an ideal neighborhood to own a dog due to its location between two parks.

Morningside Park Dog Run, located between 114th and 117th streets in Central Park, is a shady space – perfect for the summertime –with two separate play areas for man’s best friend. With plenty of benches for owners to relax as well as small dishes of water set out for dogs, it’s a great spot for those with pets.

72nd Street & Riverside Drive Dog Run is a relatively new dog park to the area that has become pretty popular for a few reasons, one of them being that the park has views of the Hudson River and lush landscaped areas surrounding it. Created and operated by FLORAL, Friends & Lovers Of Riverside Area Life, it is a pebbled run that has large old trees in the middle as well as benches.

105th Street Dog Run, located at Riverside Park at 105th Street, is a spacious dog run lined with small gray pebbles that attracts tons of dogs, sometimes up to 35 at a time. A popular spot for dog walkers, the 105th Street Dog Run caters to many different breeds at once.
