How to experience a quintessential Thanksgiving/NYC?

Hello everyone, hope your Thanksgiving preparations are going well :)

This might be an odd question, but thought Serious Eats would be a good place to ask.

So I'm a non-American who moved to the US just about a year ago... so never really celebrated Thanksgiving- but would absolutely love to experience the 'proper' thing.

Im in the NYC area- and other then the Thanksgiving parade and Black Friday (the latter- which I dont plan on doing!) how can a 'foreigner' get a real taste of Thanksgiving Americana (if I may call it that way)?

Would be grateful for any recos!! Thank you!!
