4 Fun Things to Do in Lower Manhattan this July 2017

Summer is officially here and so is the hot weather. While spending time indoors may sound most ideal, there are plenty of fun outdoor events happening in and around Downtown New York City. Here are four exciting things you should check out:


(Various participating restaurants throughout Downtown NYC, Tuesdays until August 29)

Tuesdays are the new Fridays in FiDi. Take full advantage of Lower Manhattan’s bustling food scene with discounts, freebies and other exciting surprises from the Downtown Alliance’s GetLow initiative. Visit their website or follow them on Instagram to see how you can GetLow. Don’t forget to hashtag #DOWNISWHATSUP if you post any of your drinks or meals to social media, and tag Q&A Residential Hotel!

Lazy Sundays

(Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place, Sundays until September 24; 2pm – 5pm)

Wrap up the week on a high note with waterfront views, cold beverages, tasty bites and plenty of people watching. All you need to do is bring yourself and a few friends, sit back and relax.

Lowdown Hudson Music Fest

(Waterfront Plaza Brookfield Place; July 18 & 19, 5pm)

Arts Brookfield’s annual free summer musical festival is returning to Lower Manhattan for its seventh year in a row. This year’s headliners include rapper and producer Common and veteran rockers OK GO. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the bars located on the terrace and plaza.

Up Close: Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel

(Westfield World Trade Center; Now until July 23)

Okay, it’s not the real Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, but from now until July 23rd you can view 34 reproductions of the Renaissance artist’s most famous frescos in the middle of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Why spend hundreds of dollars traveling to Rome when you can spend $15 and see it at home!
