Manhattan, NY 10018
Free outdoor film screenings are a joy of New York summers, and the Bryant Park series is particularly lovely. The movies start at dusk, but locals start trickling in when the park's lush grassy lawn opens at 5pm—many folks are still in their work clothes and just head over straight from the office with take-out food and blankets in tow. (Follow suit and arrive early; the lawn gets pretty crowded by sundown.) For more information, visit bryantpark.org.
