5 Things to do in New York this Weekend

Take advantage of the free wi-fi on the Highline: Ya heard? Thanks to Google, Chelsea (between Gansevoort and 19th streets and 8th Ave. and West Side Highway) is now wi-fi enabled. Other hotspots in Manhattan and Brooklyn include: Battery Park, Central Park, Tompkins Square Park, Thomas Jefferson Park, Holcombe Rucker Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Fort Green Park, Herbert Von King Park, McCarren Park and Prospect Park. {photo via}
Hells Kitchen Flea Market: This combines two things I love - being outside and bargains. I also never go to Hells Kitchen so it would be fun to explore another area of the City. Hours are Saturday & Sunday 9:00 - 5:00 year round. {photo via}
2013 NYC Winter Jazzfest: With 70 groups playing across six different venues around the East and West Village, looks like a pretty good opportunity to soak up some culture and here some great live music. Tickets are $35 for a one-day pass and $45 for a two-day. See the full schedule here. {photo via}
See the Documentary '56 Up': Up is a series of eight documentaries that track the lives of fourteen English school children since age 7 in 1964. Every seven years a new film is released and the most recent - 56 Up - is playing at the IFC Theater right by my house now (to be released to other cities soon). Watch the trailer hereHere's a list of 10 other documentaries as recommended by A Cup of Jo you can watch at home. {photo via}

Fashion & Technology Exhibit at FIT: This exhibit (ends May 8th) explores the impact of emerging technologies on the nature of fashion design and production over the past 250 years featuring 18th- to 21st-century examples from the museum's collection. Opens this Saturday at 10:00 am. {photo via}
Like I mentioned yesterday, supposed to be a beaut this weekend in New York (relatively speaking). I actually haven't checked the weather since three days ago when it said 58° because I refuse to accept anything less. Very well could have completely changed. Don't tell me if that's the case...because I plan on doing as many of the five things listed above, the first two of which involve being outside. Have a great weekend everybody!
