It may only be the start of fall on the Upper West Side, but it’s actually the perfect time to go apple picking! Right now, apples are ripe for the picking at nearby apple farms and are ready for use in pies, cakes and other dishes, as well as tasty right off the branch.
This weekend, take the whole family to one of these apple farms located near your Sagamore apartment. With their hayrides, farm markets, mazes and children’s activities, you can make a whole day of it, ringing in autumn in the most festive way possible.
