Summer, New York Style

Summer, New York Style

New Yorkers abound with creativity when it comes to enjoying summer.

Of course, there’s always the Hamptons. But closer to home, there are a variety of ways to soak up sun — and sometimes surf — even without a rooftop cabana.

As a native New Yorker, I am always amazed — yet never surprised — by the city and its denizens. Most recently, I learned of the Timeshare Backyard on the Lower East Side.

Gothamist writes: “The organizers tell us the yard is $50/hour, and renters can bring up to 30 friends — but add ons can get pricey, with a Slip ‘n’ Slide costing $100, a kiddie pool $200, a grill with all the works for 10 people is an extra $150, and a live band starting at $5,000!”

For those looking for something a little beachy, there is also Coney Island and the newly hip Rockaways, pictured above and at Gothamist, brought to you by the Ramones and home of the donation-based Boggsville Boatel.
