My favorite thing about living in NYC is watching the city come alive after it’s winter hibernation. Here are some of the activities I’m looking forward to..

Outdoorsy

Bryant Park Yoga. Free outdoor yoga sponsored by Lululemon on Thursdays, May through September.

Yoga in Time Square, June 20th. Time Square is literally overtaken by yogis. You must register in advance, but get a free yoga mat and the opportunity to do a sun salutation in one of the busiest parts of the city.

Summer Streets. Park Avenue closes down, from the UES all the way downtown, the first three Sundays in August and streets are empty until noon for running, biking, and playing. There are also lots of outdoor classes, entertainment, and dumpster pools

Color Run, August 25th. A race where you get powdered paint thrown at you should prove to be the best run of the summer. 

Free Bike Fridays at Governors Island (and free ferry!). Every year I say “this is the summer I venture to Governors Island,” and ever summer I forget to go.

Picnics in: Central Park, High Line, Bryant Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park

Art/Culture

Museum Mile Festival, June 12th. All museum mile museums have free entry from 6-9 and 5th Avenue turns into a street fair with musicians, artists, and sidewalk chalk!

Book of Mormon. I’m going on August 17th. I had to buy these tickets in December..

5Pointz. This graffiti park in Long Island City looks like a great place for a hipster photoshoot.

Summer Stage in Central Park. If tickets for your favorite band are sold out, grab a blanket, bring dinner, and hang out in the park. The stage is outside, so can still hear the music!

Outdoor movie or Rooftop Film

Shakespeare in the Park

Baseball game. Yankees or Mets?

Food/Drink

Union Pool. It involves a trek to Brooklyn, but they have live music, an outdoor patio, and a taco truck.

Shake Shack in Madison Square Park, obviously.

Warm weather is a perfect excuse to eat 16 Handles for dinner as often as possible.

Street fair food! Hester Street Fair (LES), Smorgasburg (Brooklyn Flea Market).

A lobster roll from Luke’s Lobster is New England summer in my mouth.

Standard Biergarten. The best nights start at the Standard and end at Tortilla Flats.

Frying Pan. Beers on a boat, what else do you need?

Brooklyn Surfbar.Three words: Brooklyn.Tiki.Bar.

How does this only have 500,000 views?
