Weekends are always the rallying points for fun in New York City, and Sunday sees Ghosts In The Cottonwoods at Theatre 80 headlining the art calendar, and the evergreen Lion King musical at Minskoff Theatre coming a close second. Spirit Control features on the menu for theatre buffs, too.
They that consider ecstasy and football synonymous can revel at the New Meadowlands Stadium, where New York Giants take on Jacksonville Jaguars, easily the day’s headliner. The New Jersey Nets vs. Portland Trail Blazers face-off at Prudential Centre will enthrall the basketball DNA in you.
Among other notables, Suzanne Dottino anchors the weekly KGB Bar Sunday Night Fiction literary series as always (5pm) while the Film Society of Lincoln Centre screens Sandra. Orpheum Theatre has the international percussion ensemble Stomp in concert, and Shirley Hazzard presents her collection of personal photographs and books at The New York Society Library.
The Orange County Flea Market continues to be a popular draw to indulge in some retail therapy, while Flea By The Sea at Coney Island Beach And Boardwalk is a great place to hang out even if shopping is not really on your mind.
You can also join the Ultimate New York Food Tour on a tasting trip in “The Village”, Greenwich and West Village (call 917-617-7158).
