Memorial Day 2014

Hi all,

We will be in NYC on Memorial Day which I believe is Monday 26th May - we have things planned but wondered a) if there was anything special going on that we should not miss and b) is the city quieter/busier on that day/weekend?

Thanks

It's typically quieter and some restaurants may be closed for dinner that night.

Would be one place to check for special events.

PS many restaurants that don't serve brunch on Mondays will.

It's the unofficial start of summer, so a fair number of people leave town for the weekend. Some neighborhoods, Upper East Side for example, will seem a lot quieter.
