Because you need to know where to downward dog and sip cider together.

Autumn is a glorious time in NYC, and you owe it to yourself and your friends to plan some fun stuff to take advantage of all that your city has to offer you. Here are a few fun ideas of stuff happening around the city this month to have some good Fall fun. And if you need another reason, here’s a GG quote to inspire you.

“Sometimes you need to step outside, clear your head and remind yourself of who you are. And where you wanna be. And sometimes you have to venture outside your world in order to find yourself. As for me, I’m happy right where I am. I only wanna be with you. xoxo . . . Gossip Girl”
