MANHATTAN SUMMER (not for Turist)

What can you do during the hot days in this island? A lot of things, but here I would like to share with you activities for real Newyorkers.

Monday: Happy hour in a traditional New York pub along midtown streets, like “Ginger Man” and others.

Tuesday: After dinner (restaurant week is a great deal) a walk between meetpacking and west village where there are no high buildings but only townhouses and lofts.

Wednesday: Concert in Madison Square Park. In front of the historical Flatiron building and beside the NY life insurance building inspired by the Salisbury Cathedral in England and the MetLife tower modeled on the “Campanile San Marco in Venice”. Getting out from your cubicle, 1 or 2 hours concert in this beautiful spot is the perfect relax solution.

Thursday: In Central Park West Shakespeare show played by New York Classical Theatre. The show starts in a lawn close the 103th street entrance and then moves through several other spots. Following actors/actresses along Central Park hills is tough at the end of a work day, but is fun.

Friday: Hudson River on the piers between 30 and 54 you can find music, movies, ballet and dance watching the sunset on Jersey skyline.

Saturday: Riverside park on Hudson River, Hudson Warehouse company plays under the stars behind the Soldiers and Sailors monument (89th street). Stop by and sit on the stairs or on the benches and actors/actresses will be around you and you are going to be part of the show.

Sunday: Take a bike and ride from the Upper West side (180th street) to battery park along the Hudson river. Take a rest in one of the piers for a sunbath and then continue on the east river under the Bridges (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg…) until UN.

Enjoy your Week.
