New York City is unlike any other city on Earth. You can find something to do there, regardless of what interests you or how you care to spend your time. Summer is one of the ideal times to visit or live in New York, since you can enjoy many outdoor activities as well as indoor ones.
Let’s discuss some of what you might do in New York this summer. Maybe one of these options appeals to you, or perhaps several of them do.
Have a Date in Central Park
If you’re using one of the dating apps that are out there, you may match with someone and want to learn more about them. You might go to information.com and use their free person search engine if you want to find out more about this person before you meet them face to face. That’s a step many people take before they leave cyberspace and interact with someone.
If you feel like you’re connecting with this person in a meaningful way, going for a stroll through Central Park might constitute the ideal first date for you. Many people think it’s perfect because you are out in the fresh air. You can also conclude the date, excuse yourself, and walk away if things don’t work out.
Central Park is wonderful in the summer, and there are fewer better places to get to know someone. You can see whether they are a good conversationalist, and maybe if you get hungry, you can take the date indoors and have some lunch or dinner with your new romantic interest.
Go to a Baseball Game
It’s hard to find better venues than either Citi Field, which the Mets call home, or Yankee Stadium, where the Bronx Bombers play when they’re in town. You can utilize the subway to get to either venue, or you can always grab a taxi, a Lyft, or an Uber.
If you go to Citi Field, you can explore Queens a little bit before the game starts. You’ll find some nice restaurants and bars around Willet’s Point at the end of the 7 line.
If you head to the Bronx, you’ll find restaurants and sports-themed bars all around Yankee Stadium as well. If you rarely get out of Manhattan or Brooklyn, you might learn to appreciate one of the other boroughs if you start going to games there.
You Can Walk Around the Village
The East Village is one of the most unique and fun places to spend some time. You can have a drink at the Thirsty Scholar or the 13th Step. You might go to Marie’s Crisis, where you can sing some show tunes with the Broadway crowd that frequently spends time there.
You might have dinner at Veselka, one of the best Ukrainian diners you’ll ever visit. The short rib pierogies are excellent, or you might enjoy their homemade chili or thick chocolate milkshakes.
You’ll find plenty of boutiques and small shops with souvenirs if you’re from out of town. You can also frequently spot celebrities there, so keep your eyes open.
Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge will put you either in Brooklyn or Manhattan, depending on where you start. If you begin on the Manhattan side, you can walk across and end up in DUMBO, down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass. It’s a trendy neighborhood with bars, cafes, and restaurants.
If you start on the Brooklyn side and walk over to Manhattan, you’ll find you’re close to Chinatown. You can explore Canal Street, where you will find all kinds of knockoff purses, jeans, and watches.
You will see tourists and locals mingling there as they go about their business. You will feel the city’s incredible diversity as people walk by you from all backgrounds speaking many different languages.
Go to Coney Island
You can also take the N line to the very last stop, Coney Island. You can see where they filmed The Warriors, the iconic movie that captured New York’s spirit during the gritty 1970s.
You can walk along the pier and look out at the Atlantic Ocean. You can fish if you bring a rod, or you might stop by Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog stand, which has existed now for many decades. You can ride the Ferris wheel or visit the aquarium.
New York City has unlimited activities to offer, so get out there and enjoy the nice weather this summer.
