ARE YOU HERE IN AUGUST?! WHY!!! Just kidding. Good news is you have NYC basically to yourself. New Yorker's flee to the Hampton's and the shore on weekends so enjoy the not-so-long lines! There are tons of fun, tasty and relaxing summer hot spots to check out before the hungry New Yorker's come back.
Let's talk Poke (Poh-kay). what is it? Its a raw fish salad that got ton's of buzz in LA and now New Yorker's have gone all fish-eyed for it. Where's the best in town? Wisefish, Chelsea. The lines can get crazy but go on a off-hour. (ie, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm)
Now that I've got your mind on the water, why not go on a FREE hudson river cruise and enjoy buckets of beer and buttery lobster rolls. The North River Lobster Co, aka the lobsta boat, departs every hour and cruises the hudson for 40 mins and returns. Stay for one ride, or enjoy multiple... FOR FREE! I promise your pics of the skyline will be on pointe. Here are the sailing times .
Sip on some cold brew or the trailblazer of coffee drinks..a Draught latte. La Colombe claims to be the first to serve such a drink and it is delish. Frothed milk + Cold pressed espresso. Heavenly in this heat!
Enjoy and Stay Cool!
