New York in Summer is a beautiful sight – the colorful flower pots, the green parks, the outside tables and chairs, the ice cream trucks… it is the season of fun, relaxation, leisure, and the frequent weekend getaways. Though, not every New Yorker travels far away from their hometown, as there are plenty of things to do and see in New York City in the Summer – from amazing festivals, free, outdoors movie nights, exciting parades, extended museum hours to the Sunday afternoon barbecue outings, and of course – the festive 4th of July weekend.
While Summer is the official season of glee that must be enjoyed to the fullest, the weather in New York City can be especially intense, with temperatures frequently rising over 95F and above. Throw in 70-90% humidity to the mix, and you will find yourself sweating profusely while walking or standing outside, even for a few minutes. So, don’t forget to put on that sunblock, a hat and a pair of sunglasses, and to grab a bottle of water when you’re ready to go out and explore the Big Apple. (Unless, you’re going out in the evening, of course).
Below are some photos of New York from the Summer of 2017. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the city in Summer, or if you simply admire it as us, locals, do – please enjoy this photo diary:
