Welcome to New York, It's been waiting for You.

New York my favorite place to be in the summer, not because it's my home but there is so much to do, if you have been thinking about it Welcome to New York it's been waiting for you.


It happens every year: Summer comes around, and you make awesome plans for picnics, outdoor weddings, fashion events, brunch, concerts, and delicious cocktail drinks on a rooftop.
I came up with a helpful list of my New York summer activities that make staying in the hot and sweaty city on the weekends not only tolerable, but positively enjoyable. 
If New York is a place on your list to visit check it out, it's been waiting for you and if you live here enjoy the beauty and fabulousness of your awesome city like i do.
My NY Summer Activity List.

1.Watch one of Bryant Park's Monday night movies for free. 
2. Have a picnic in Sheep Meadow with all of your friends and enjoy the gorgeous Central Park views.
3. Check out Summer Streets, when seven miles of road from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park along Park Avenue are closed off on Saturday mornings in August. There are free bike rentals, rock-climbing, a zip line, and more.
4. Visit Picnic Point on Governors Island via a free ferry and relax in hammocks with incredible views of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor.
5. Sip a fabulous cocktail at one of New York's rooftop bars. I recommend 230 Fifth for its rooftop garden, stellar view of the Empire State Building, and strong drinks.
6. Buy an ice-cream cone and walk along the High Line park from the Meatpacking District all the way up to 34th Street. It makes for the perfect summer stroll thanks to ample benches, shade, and food vendors.
7. Take the A train all the way up to 190th Street and visit The Cloisters, a branch of The Met that displays Medieval European art. Bonus: Fort Tryon Park has awesome views of the Hudson River.
8. Cool off by going on a Margarita tour of NYC — Empell√≥n Cocina, Habana Outpost, and Agave are all great places to start your journey.
9. Anchors away at the Frying Pan, the lightship docked at Pier 66 Maritime in New York City. They serve unbelievably tasty seafood, Sangria, and french fries, and it's also the perfect hangout for a Friday or Saturday night.
10. Escape from skyscrapers and traffic by touring the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. It has 14 different gardens to peruse along with events and classes such as wild medicine, gardening, and cooking demonstrations.
11. Become a tourist for a day and take the Staten Island Ferry around New York. Not only will you enjoy the breeze and views of the city, but it's something everyone has to do at least once in their time here.
12. Swim in a rooftop pool — I recommend The Dream Downtown's 'The Beach,' which non-hotel guests have access to, if they rent a 6-8 person cabana or pay for a day pass for $50 pp.
13. Kayak around Manhattan for free and take in the skyline. The NYC Downtown Boathouse offers free sit-on-top kayaks for public use at each of their four city locations, as well as changing rooms, bike locks, and sunscreen.
14. Break out your best moves at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing. A season pass (16 sessions) is $170, and the live band starts jamming after a group dance lesson.
15. Pretend you’re at the beach at NYC's Beekman Beer Garden. With sand, glow-in-the-dark couches, and jaw-dropping views of New York's east side, you won't regret paying this spot at least one summer visit.
16. Admire the East River's July 4 fireworks show with millions of other New Yorkers. Now in it's 38th year, the annual Macy's fireworks are will be set off from the Brooklyn Bridge in 2015.
17. Catch a New York baseball game from the bleachers. Whether you're watching the Yankees or the Mets, heading to the ball park and downing an over-priced beer and hot dog is what summer is all about.
18. Good Morning America Summer Concert Series at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park
Hop out of bed for free early-morning concerts at Rumsey Playfield. Dierks Bentley, Nicki Minaj and Hozier are a few of the acts scheduled to perform. Set your alarm and grab a latte, doors open at 6am 
19. One World Observatory The new space boasts panoramic vistas of the City skyline, surrounding waterways and beyond from 1,250 feet high. The observatory also features the latest in innovative technology and will host interactive exhibitions and become the future home of numerous dining establishments.
20. Broadway in Bryant Park Pack your lunch and head to Bryant Park for these midday, hour-long concerts, at which cast members from Broadway's most popular shows sing the songs that turned those musicals into hits. Last year's performances included songs from current Broadway smashes Mamma Mia! and Phantom of the Opera.
