What's Open, Closed Thanksgiving Weekend

Here's what's open and here's what's closed on Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and the weekend.

 

Thanksgiving is a federal holiday and the beginning of a four-day weekend for many people. Here's what's open and what's closed, and what bus or train schedules are the same or different.

And if you're looking for an alternative to football on television, we've included the movie schedule for the Bow-Tie Criterion Cinemas at Greenwich Plaza on Railroad Avenue.
