As we enter the summer months, it becomes the perfect time to experience what New York City has to offer. From modern rooftop bars to the classic Coney Island, there is something to do for every mood. Here are some of the things that I am most excited about in New York City this summer.
Known as a historical staple in the city, Coney Island provides year-round entertainment for tourists and residents alike. Located next to a beach, visitors can enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, or can take a stroll down the boardwalk. For those who are looking for excitement, they can choose from an array of roller coasters, go-karts, an aquarium, and sideshows. Additionally, Coney Island is home to a wide variety of delicious restaurants for visitors to enjoy. Coney Island is also home to the Abe Stark Skating Arena, the Coney Island Museum, and the baseball park for the Brooklyn Cyclones. There is something to do for everybody when visiting Coney Island.
Whitney Museum of American Art
Located in the Meatpacking District in New York City, the Whitney Museum of American Art is the perfect destination for art enthusiasts. The museum is home to a wide array of twentieth century and contemporary american art pieces throughout the impressive 50,000 square foot building. The Whitney Museum of American Art features over 21,000 pieces of contemporary art for viewing, with an additional 18,000 square feet for temporary or special art exhibitions. To top it off, the Whitney Museum of American Art is housed in a beautiful and newly renovated building, allowing the most expansive view ever of modern and contemporary American art.
PH-D Rooftop & Lounge
For anyone that wants to experience New York City from another view will love the PH-D Rooftop & Lounge, located in Midtown. The lounge used the concept of a penthouse to create the lounge, which features an indoor bar on the 15th floor, and an outdoor patio on the 16th floor. The patio allows visitors to get an incredible view of Midtown in New York City. PH-D Rooftop & Lounge is a great destination for happy hour and dinner. For those who want to experience New York City’s nightlife, PH-D features rotating DJ’s and weekly parties. Make sure to visit the rooftop this summer to get an unfiltered view of the city.
New York City is home to countless restaurants and attractions, making it a great place to visit for anyone. Whether you are visiting New York City to experience their endless food options, or wanting to learn more about the history of the city, visitors have endless options.
