IN the summer though, Manhattan does offer it’s resident quite a few free events that New Yorkers flock to. Here are a few fun free events happening that our residents at The Sagamore can take advantage of upcoming weeks.

Shakespeare in the Park: Spring and Summer nights are beautiful with the warm air and cool breeze mixing together to create the perfect weather for sitting outdoors. The Sagamore residents can enjoy some outdoor weather and a show by attending Shakespeare in the Park. Performances take place throughout the sunny weather months at night in Central Park. Tickets can be hard to come by but if you become a member of different cultural groups or enter your name in the lottery you have a good chance of snagging one for some summer entertainment.

Movie Nights: Free movie nights will take place throughout all five boroughs of New York. Starting this month every day you can find multiple movie showings at different parks and locations.
