We’re just about halfway through the summer and despite the unbearable temperatures and humidity we’ve been facing here in NYC, this summer has not been a bummer! We’ve compiled a list of some of the things we’re favoring in NYC this season:
On The Sea:
What’s better than oysters & rosé on a boat? Probably nothing. Spend your Summer Fridays on the Grand Banks oyster boat overlooking the Hudson River with views of the Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty.
If you have an Instagram, then you know that this season’s hot spot outside of Manhattan is The Surf Lodge in Montauk. Currently dripping in rainbows courtesy of artist Jen Stark, the place is also dripping with celebrities.
On (Roof)Top of the World:
The S’well team is #blessed to have this view at the S’well bottle HQ. You might see an employee or two run up the staircase to hold whatever food of choice in the air with the skyline as the ideal background.
You have not experienced ice cream until you’ve tried Van Leeuwen’s recent special flavor, Honey Comb. This frozen scoop of heaven is unbelievably creamy and complimented by chunks of crispy honey comb that mixed in. Run and get a scoop before team S’well eats all that’s left in the city.
Our friends over at sweetgreen just released their Late Summer Menu and it is not to be missed. The Watermelon + Feta is the perfect salad to cool down with. The Guacamole Greens is like a burrito bowl, turned into a healthy salad, that can only be described as delicioso.
Best Rainy/Too Hot To Be Outside Day Activity:
The New Whitney is a must this Summer. Raining? So hot that you might melt? Retreat to the New Whitney in Meatpacking. Every detail of even the building is perfect; not to mention the actual artwork. The outside area with the rainbow color chairs is every instagramers dream. Don’t forget to visit Danny Meyer’s new Untitled below the Whitney for milk and cookies.
