Fall is here!

The best season in NYC has arrived and to prepare, Time Out New York’s experts have put together a comprehensive Fall Preview full of exciting up-and-coming exhibits, theater shows, restaurant openings and more happening this fall in New York City.

Specifically, you’ll find the best Broadway and Off Broadway shows to catch (see: Merrily We Roll Along), new art shows that have caught our eye (Manet/Degas at the Met), restaurants we’re looking forward to trying (Metropolis at the new Perelman Performing Arts Center) as well as concerts (Lauryn Hill’s 25th-anniversary tour in NYC), museum exhibits (like AMNH’s “Secret World of Elephants”)

Farther down, you’ll see our picks for the best things to do for Oktoberfest, Halloween, Thanksgiving and more in NYC.

And don’t miss our spectacular interviews with improv comedian Ben Schwartz ahead of his big night at Radio City Music Hall and Broadway boys Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells as they launch Gutenberg! The Musical! together.

Get your planner because it’s going to be a delightfully busy fall!
