Post-election, we're tuning in to our families, specifically family fun in NYC this weekend, which boasts three of our top event picks for November. Go on a whimsical, interactive journey with Pip's Island, celebrate kid lit at the Children's Book Fair, and catch the 240th Commemoration of the Battle of Fort Washington with blacksmiths and soldiers going full-out 18th century style.
Also this weekend: go for some early holiday shopping with Neighborhood Toy Store Day that includes events all over the city at participating indie toy stores or festival fun including a Fall Fun Festival in the West Village, Generation to Generation Festival on the Lower East Side, and a circus fest in Long Island City.
