In addition to the many joys of summer – long days, warm weather escapes, ice cream treats – comes the opportunity for music lovers and fans alike to take part in outdoor concerts. Every year, the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn plays host to a selection of musical acts, ranging from well known artists to up and comers. Though the venue for the concerts has changed over the years from McCarren Park to the latest iteration at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Kent Avenue, each experience is better than the next. This summer boasts weekly musical moments, upstaged only by the brilliant view of Manhattan’s skyline as a backdrop. Check out the full list of Williamsburg Waterfront Concerts below!

The trend may have heated up in Los Angeles, but food trucks are hardly a new idea. Cultures all over the world offer quick and easy delicacies along the side of the road, literally turning a restaurant into a mobile environment. But while LA has their taco trucks, New York took the idea of a food truck and ran with it in a way no one’s seen yet. Now city streets are covered in decorated trucks, offering everything from Korean barbeque to slushies. What began as just a few lone mobile chefs has turned into a massive collection of restaurateurs. And to continue the move towards embracing new forms of culture, each truck broadcasts their location through social media, announcing on Twitter each morning their planned destination. This summer, forgo the regular dinner in a restaurant and opt instead for dinner al fresco, in a park with one of the many food truck dishes!
When the weather turns warm in New York City, eating outside becomes a desired way of life. City residents are so desperate to escape indoor confines and bask in the summer’s heat that it’s easy to forget the cute little outdoor table you’re about to sit down at is actually on a major bus lane. So in attempt to pair both dining al fresco with city living, forgo the gross fumes thanks to a variety of rooftop dining locations. If you’re a Brooklyn lover, make plans to visit Juliette, where a hidden terrace provides a dinner experience under the city stars. With Mario Batali’s latest creation comes Birreria, a rooftop beer garden serving all Italian delicacies. Indulge in meats and cheeses from the various parts of the country, while sipping on a selection of beverages like Italian and American craft beers, plus three original cask beers brewed in house. When you’re in the mood for sushi in the summer, take off for the West Village, as Sushi Samba provides both the views and delicacies for an evening of dining under the stars. For a bit of culture, spend the afternoon checking out the Metropolitan Museum of Art and finish off the afternoon of art with a refreshing glass of vino and snacks on the museum’s rooftop, overlooking views of the Central Park.

Birreria; 200 5th Avenue at 23rd Street

With the arrival of June 21st comes the official beginning of summer, which gives city residents a short window of time to cram in as many warm weather excursions as possible. Weekend trips to the Hamptons and Fire Island may be already planned, but for those who are enjoying a stay-cation this summer, there’s hardly a lack of fun to be found.
After all he’s gone through and done for you, dear old Dad needs a bit of appreciation shown to him. Though said father should feel the love all year round, there’s no better day than Father’s Day to give him an extra bit of attention. For city dwellers, it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a few of your favorite past times with dad. A trip to Yankees Stadium might be out of the question considering your baseball allegiances, but there’s hardly a lack of interesting adventures to find in New York. For the more relaxed Dad, start the day with dim sum in Chinatown, followed by a calm afternoon in the park. If your old man is all about the gastronomic pleasures, you could go one of two ways: walking food tour or a prix fixe menu planned at a fancy restaurant. But let’s say your father is more of the cultural individual, in which case a tour of one of the less visited museums would provide the perfect afternoon activities. But whatever you end up doing, the most important realization is that the most important part of the day is simply spending time together.
