The Bronx Museum is located along the Grand Concourse just north and east of Yankee Stadium and they are open through the weekend.
The Edgar Allen Poe Cottage is also open but Thursdays and Fridays only. It is on Kingsbridge Road and Grand Concourse in the Fordham neighborhood. It's an historic venue, but there are frequently artistic events centered around writing.

Click here to view the Theatre section of the Bronx Events Calendar to see what's doing this Labor Day weekend theater in the Bronx NYC.
Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay Park organizes a Salsa Music & Dance Party from 1 pm to 6 pm Sunday.
Lehman College for the Performing Arts is located along Goulden Avenue between Bedford Park Blvd West and 197th Street in the Bedford Park neighborhood. It's one of the Bronx top performance venues, but unfortunately on Labor Day Weekend it's closed.
Manhattan College, Hostos College, Bronx College and Fordham University all organize and sponsor events, but I suspect that like Lehman they don't do much over the Labor Day Weekend.
An example of an interesting shopping venue is shown in the photo above, which was taken at one of Bronx many street fairs.

Bicycling in the Bronx & NYC
Bronx has a number and growing list of bike paths. Click here to view a report about bike laws in NYC so you can ride safely. There's a program called Citi Bikes, which allows you to rent a bike using your credit card. Whereever you find bike racks filled with blue bicycles - take a closer look and it's probably a Citi Bike rack and you can rent a bike from there and return it to any of their racks around NYC.
We're working on a useable map of bike trails in the Bronx, since we couldn't find one we liked. In the photo above right you can see folks launching boats into the Bronx River from Hunts Point Riverside Park.

There are a couple of kyaking clubs that operate in the NYC Metro area. Generally they will provide free use of kyaks or charge only a nominal fee.

And there's also Rocking the Boat.org at Hunts Point Riverside Park at Lafayette Avenue between Edgewater Road and the Bronx River on Saturday only from 1 to 6 pm [ends Labor Day & started Memorial Day Weekend].
