Everywhere you turn during summer in New York City, something exciting is happening. There are free outdoor concerts and movies all around the five boroughs, and Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Food trucks and festivals pop up on every corner. It’s a great time to catch a ball game or US Open tennis matches, walk the High Line in short sleeves, head up to the Bronx Zoo to spot animals or head down to Coney Island for a ride on the wooden tracks of the Cyclone roller coaster—still thrilling after all these years.
Free concerts, Museum Mile and, yes, Allen Iverson are among the reasons we can’t wait for the season.
