What’s open and closed in NYC on Labor Day
Labor Day in New York is a federal holiday. Americans celebrate it on the first Monday in September as a recognition of the services of the working people of the United States, paying tribute to the American labor movement. In honor of this holiday, many municipal institutions and private businesses are closed for the whole day, according to Silive.
This holiday symbolizes the end of the summer season and the importance of work achievements in the history of the country. On this day, many citizens enjoy the time spent with family and friends, have picnics and small trips. In honor of the holiday, the city is preparing various events, cultural programs and pleasant promotions.
However, in addition to joyful celebrations, Labor Day is accompanied by a number of changes in the work schedules of state institutions, which are important for every city dweller to know about.
