As a New Englander I think it’s basically my job to find the best lobster rolls in the city. Since I won’t be able to visit Maine or the Cape this summer I have to find the best options close by. I plan on trying out Luke’s, Mary’s Fish Camp, Pearl Oyster Bar and more.
Last summer I made a plan to go to an outdoor movie when I was in the city one weekend, but it fell through, so now I’m making sure I can go this summer! It’s the perfect location by the water and they often have food trucks to sooth all my crazy cravings.
When everything gets crazy in the city over the summer I am forcing myself to take a mini vacation to Governor’s Island. The day will consist of frisbee, book reading, and sleeping on their amazing hammocks. I’ve only heard amazing things about the island and have meaning to go for so long.
I’ve been to the Brooklyn Bridge at basically every time of day, except sunrise. It’s absolutely beautiful at sunset and in the middle of the night, but I’m dying to see the sun rise from the bridge, even if it’s ridiculously early. Who knows, maybe I just won’t go to sleep the night before 😉
Ok, well maybe I can’t eat everything at Smorgasburg, but I haven’t even been once yet so I need to go. For someone who calls herself a foodie as well as being instagram obsessed it’s pretty unbelievable that I haven’t made my way over to NYC’s favorite food market. Between hot dogs, donuts, fries, and tacos, I want it all…
When July 25th rolls around you can find me at the Great Lawn in Central Park with a ridiculous water gun. Apparently there were thousands of people there last summer and I won’t miss it this summer. It’s like a huge snow ball fight, but way way better because it’s summer and warm and not snowing.
The best part of summer in the city this year is the number of friends I have staying here. Some are coming back to the city from abroad and some are just staying past the end of the semester for work, and we are all going to have so much fun together. Before the summer ends I want to get everyone together for a sunny picnic brunch where everyone can bring their favorite brunch foods and finally catch up with each other 🙂
