What's Open and What's Closed in Wake of Hurricane Sandy
NEW YORK CITY — In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the city’s busy calendar of entertainment and events has, not surprisingly, also taken a hit.
As the city trudges it's way back to normalcy, here's a roundup of how some of the major entertainment and cultural venues have been affected.
• The Brooklyn Nets' big debut versus the Knicks at the Barclays Center, orginally slated for Thursday, is now postponed. A new date hasn't been scheduled yet.
• Most Broadway shows are now up and running, with the exception of Disney productions — so no "Lion King" or "Mary Poppins" yet.
• For the first time, ever, the Village Halloween Parade has been canceled. It’s not yet clear when or if the parade will be rescheduled.
• Good news for runners: The ING New York City Marathon is still on for this Sunday.
• Many museums were slowly opening their doors Wednesday.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is open from noon to 5:30 p.m., with free admission Wednesday.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is open until 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, with regular admission.
The lower east side's New Museum also remains closed, until "conditions approve" according the museums websites.
• Because of continued power outages, many downtown music venues remain shuttered — BrooklynVegan.com has a good rundown of shows and Halloween events that are still going on tonight, as well as those that are canceled.
