I have a lot on a to-do list for June, first because I need to redeem these passed two quarantine years and start coloring new memories of this never sleep illuminated city.
The sun is out, warm, inviting you to walk and explore the city; yes, even if you are a New Yorker, you will always have new corners to discover because there is no other like a New York Summer.
My list consists of places that I have not been to yet and that are budget-friendly; hence with the inflation crumbling our coins, discipline spending needs to be enforced in my book.
The rooftop at the Pier 17 $$
A long list of performances is available for the entire summer, from foreign to local artists, to enjoy and shake the stress away.
The Coney Island Mermaid parade $
Like the rest of us, this precession has suffered the hiatus of the quarantine. I have longed to go for years, and I will be camera-ready on June 18.
Museum mile festival $
Yes, I’m ashamed to say I have never been to this grand celebration of art and culture; nonetheless, it is never too late, and this June is the month to redeem myself.
NY philharmonic concerts in the parks $
So many excellent movie scenes with the philharmonic concerts; now is the time to revive this romantic moment and make the best of what this gorgeous city offers.
Visit little island at Pier 54 $
I can’t wait to set foot on this landmark and “chef d’œuvre”. Take a picture and create reels of summer. I can already I would be one to remember.
I have been a resident of this vibrant city for years now, and my list is heavy; I am sure I will always find a new venture to experience for the first time in these busy NYC streets.
Are you staying in, or making it a summer to remember this year? I opt for the balance of exploring on a budget. Let me know if you are also contemplating enjoying the warm weather responsibly.
Thank you for reading and sharing!
