Labor Day weekend: what to do

Posted: Updated:

It's Labor Day weekend -- here are some ideas for what to do.

ALL ABOARD! On Sunday The Great North River Tugboat Race and Competition begins at 10am. Head to Pier 84 and you'll find about 20 tugboats that will be prepping for a race along the Hudson. The race starts just south of the 79th Street Boat Basin and you can be a part of the parade thanks to the Circle Line spectator boat

The New York Unicycle festival is happening both Saturday and Sunday on Governors Island. If you ever have wanted to learn how to ride a unicycle now is your chance. Come test you skills on the custom-built Hell on Wheel trials course, and play unicycle hockey and basketball. And yes it's all for free!

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
