My last visit to NYC the temperature was around 100 degrees. It was terrible! I visited with my Dad and we had to pop into to different spots just to keep cool. This year the temperature was cooler but it was still summer weather. I decided to pull together some of my favorite picks for places to beat the heat in NYC.
10. Yoga in Bryant Park. I am a huge fan of yoga as I do it regularly and was so excited to see mats being set up in Bryant Park. Classes are available Tuesday and Thursday check the schedule for times
This adorable ice cream shop just opened up in Soho. They have multiple types of vanilla and chocolate amongst many other flavors. More info here
7. If you have a sweet tooth but don’t want ice cream you can find any of your favorite past childhood candys at Economy Candy. Get ready to bring back a lot of memories from your childhood. This place is so much fun and stays cool!
7. I loved exploring the West Village with a friend of mine popping into all the adorable shops. This beautiful Perfume shop has every candle and perfume you could imagine. Aedes de Venustas New York I felt like I was back in Paris.
6. Buvettes – staying in the West Village if you start to get hungry you can stop by Buvettes. I am not sure how I missed this place all this time. I felt like I was back in Paris the minute I stepped inside. I cooled off with a salmon tartine and a tall glass of fresh lemonade. Even the straws are cute! This place stays open until 2am so there is no reason not to try it. I can’t wait to go back again!
5. Hamiltons – This adorable old soda/ice cream shop just opened up last week. I stumbled upon it while walking through the West Village. I have been begging for someone to open one of these up and finally someone did and they did it well! Ice cream sodas, banana splits and more are on this menu.
4. If you have had your fill on food its time to explore a little outside. If you are up for it you can head over to Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo. After all the walking I did this past weekend I had to throw in some extra yoga.
3. Right next to Brooklyn Bridge Park you can hop on Jane’s carousel for a beautiful view of the water and city. At only $2 a ride what’s not to love?
2. Central Park Boats – My lovely friend Taylor had me walking around a different part of central Park I had not seen before. We saw these super cute boats you could rent and send them around the water. It made me feel like I was back in Paris at Luxembourg Gardens.
1. Central Park Stroll – if you aren’t into the boats you can always just stroll through Central Park and people watch. We had so much fun doing it last week!
