Events on the Edge: Fall in NYC

Every season NYC has a lot to offer, but my favorite season is certainly the fall! With apple picking, outdoor fairs and festivals as well great indoor concerts it’s a wonderful time of year. So get out your fall jacket and enjoy the brisk air, beautiful leaves, and the Fall events.
My suggestions for Fall events:
1. Apple Festival at the Queens County Farm Museum
October 2, 11am to 4pm
A large variety of apples, apple products, and freshly pressed cider will be available. The nation’s largest apple cobbler will be baked on site. Learn fun apple facts at this delightful event. Vendors will have a variety of collectibles for sale, food, hayrides, and free children’s games will make this event fun for all ages. (
