    New York I Love You
    Rachel Bilson and Andy Garcia in "New York I Love You", out October 16.

    WE’LL TAKE MANHATTAN: The winning concept in 2007’s “Paris, je t'aime” – a collection of shorts telling different love stories in each of the city’s arrondissements -- gets a Gotham retread in “New York I Love You,” out today. The marquee is crowded – directors include Mira Nair and Natalie Portman, and the cast runs the gamut from Rachel Bilson and Andy Garcia (pictured) to Julie Christie and Cloris Leachman – but how can you resist spending a couple of hours with a who’s who of New Yorkers in love with the city, and each other? Find showtimes here.

    YES OUI CAN: Speaking of ripping off the French, be sure to check out the 15th Annual Tour de Bronx on Sunday. Transportation Alternatives hosts the largest (non-competitive) free ride event in the state, with different routes for different skill levels, all capped with the Tour de Bronx Grand Finale Festival at the NY Botanical Garden. Guaranteed Lance-free! Sunday; check-ins start at 8:15AM.

    NOTHIN DOIN: Jerry Seinfeld wants to know what your problem is. Literally. If you’re married, or in a long-term relationship, the sitcom star-turned-reality-TV-producer wants you to audition to be one of the couples featured on his new show "The Marriage Ref", about real-life marital spats and how they get resolved. The casting team will be at Big Apple Comic Con all weekend long, so grab your Snookums and your gripes and come on down to Pier 94. Full details here.

    LIFE OF PIE: Think your apple pie is the stuff of dreams? Bake it and bring it down to Enid’s Seventh Annual Apple Pie Bake-Off in Greenpoint on Saturday. There, your entry will be judges by various Brooklyn food notables, and after the ribbons (or in this case, kitchen gadgets) are passed out, everybody gets to sample everything and wash it down with Maple Sours. Saturday, 4PM.

    SNOOPY: How much do we love a good historical open house event? Sure, sure, it’s all about appreciating the architectural details – in this case, those of beautifully preserved and restored Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstones – but also, you get to spy on peoples’ homes and pretend you live there. Or is that just us? 31st Annual Bed-Stuy House Tour, Saturday, 11AM-4PM.
