Books, Yoga and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, September 14, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a book festival in Brooklyn to yoga at a museum. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.

The weeklong Brooklyn Book Festival concludes this weekend. Be sure to stop by the Brooklyn Borough hall area to hear from some of New York’s best writers.
