The three things you need to know today in New York: Fri August 18

Written by
Rebecca Fontana

1. The two-day Emerging Music Festival starts at Bryant Park tonight. Between indie-rock and blues performances, grab a snack from food vendors and play games on the lawn.

2. For only the second time this month, Governors Island will stay open past sunset. The park will remain active for an additional four hours past its typical 6pm closing time.

3. Spend time gallery hopping Uptown this weekend. From a former bank on the Upper East Side to giant East Harlem galleries, these spaces are home to some of the best art in New York.

For more events, check in with Time Out throughout the day.
