Olympics NYC: Where to Watch the Games

Olympics NYC Where to Watch the Games

Games on!
The Summer Olympics kicked off Aug. 5 with the Opening Ceremony. Then it’s a 16-day marathon production of hundreds of events in more than 40 sports, from archery to wrestling (and even a marathon).
If you’re not heading to Rio, this year’s host city, for the Games, there are plenty of ways to catch the action in a group setting in New York City.
“We’ve been very successful with our Olympics screenings and our sports screenings showing them in the theater,” said Ron Simon, curator of the Paley Center for Media, which will be screening the Olympics for free in its theater. “It does change perspective. You begin to see the event communally.”
Here’s where to watch the Olympics live, from the Opening Ceremony to the very last event on Aug. 21.

Move over, caipirinha. At the craft beer hall, which will be showing the Games daily, sip your way through a menu of international beers this Olympics, from Italy’s Baladin Isaac ($12) to England’s Coniston Blue Bird Bitter ($10) to the United States’ own Brooklyn Brewery The Defender ($7). There will also be Brazilian beers on rotation on tap from the Pinhais brewery Way Beer. 1125 First Ave., treadwellpark.com
