First Day of Summer

Pin It now! Happy first day of Summer!  If you haven't already realized, summer is my favorite season of the year.  I love it hot.  I love how the city is buzzing.  Everyone is trying to fit all the hot weather activities in a short three month time frame.  It's exhausting, but since the season flies by so quickly here, you have to keep going.  Just go!

Here's a prime example.  Why have a little concert inside when you can set up on the sidewalk.  Seriously, this was a first.  They brought all the speakers and cables out to the street.  I'm not sure who the band was, but they were amazing.  I think a few people brought their lawn chairs out and sat across the street to watch and listen.  Love. It.

And since the summer is a short 3 1/2 months, here comes another to-do list.  We're going to make sure we get stuff done before the leaves starting falling off the trees.
  1. Free Bike Friday at Governors Island
  2. Watching Back to the Future and Jurassic Park on the Intrepid.  Make a picnic and enjoy the movie.
  3. Get to the pool and beach as much as possible.
  4. Finally watch the Dragon Boat races in Flushing
  5. Eat and drink outdoors as much as possible.
  6. Camping (I know this isn't going to happen, but it would be fun!)
  7. Visit the new second opening of the High Line.
  8. Take the tram to Roosevelt Island
  9. ....
