Things you can still do in NYC before it gets freezing cold outside

Summer in NYC as I always say is either good or bad depending on how you look at it or what you happen to be doing (if you’re not busy being a rich millionaire going to the Hamptons every other weekend, or booking it to the Caribbean last minute on a private jet).

But I always have to argue that while the hotness and smelly streets might factor in to why anyone would ever want to spend their summer days in a crowded city on a 90 degree day, I wouldn’t have it any other way; summer in NYC is the best, and there’s still some time left to enjoy all it has offer before the fall days turn into snowfalls in December.
