'Hot Town, Summer in the City' ... Hey there's a fountain, I feel the urge to get wet, oh man, that really feels good . . .
It's a high stakes game under way here at Bryant Park. Who says you need money to have a good time in New York? there's endless free cool stuff available . . .
Take a refreshing dip in Central Park and check out the humans gawking with their cameras . . .
Nothing rivals the costumes of the West Indian Parade in Brooklyn, nothing else comes close.
There's always a shady spot you can grab in Central Park and lay back and watch a game, read a book, drift off . . .
Now playing on the express platform at 96th street, it's the first movement of the Subwy Concerto in A for cello and screeching brake . . .
Yes, that's what I was thinking as well. Does he carry that piano around with him everywhere?
. . . and don't forget the numerous impromptu stages that you find as you stroll Central Park . . . wow, they can actually play!!
It's always great to get out on the water and feel the breeze as you zoom up the Hudson , the East River or points along the Harbor.
. . . or maybe you are looking for calmer waters found in Central Park.
It's been a long day, time to chill for a while, so let's go over to Times Square and catch a movie What? there's one playing in Bryant Park as well?
Excuse me, there's something on your hat! Oh, it IS your hat, feeding instructions not included with this one . . . a sure head turner.
Now tell me, is this a scene that comes to mind when you hear New York City? The High Line takes the high road above it all in a truly creative setting . . .
Yes, it's a dog's life in New York. Hit the sidewalk and catch up with friends, stop off at the park, maybe steal the show at the dog run... where else can you do all that?
On hot days like this you should always remember to wear a hat before steppin out . . .
One of the biggest parades is the Puerto Rican Day Parade, the most people, the most noise, the most smiles, the most celebration . . .
Manhattan has sprouted lots and lots of areas where you can just take 5, rest awhile and catch some shade. Here we are in the Flatiron District . . .
It's the boadwalk at Coney Island and everybody is here. It's sun and sand and hot dogs, guys and gals struttin their stuff, roller coaster rides and more . . .
There's always something going on down at th Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, a marriage, an acrobat troupe, a guy blowing giant bubbles or belly dancers . . .
Sitting on the steps by the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park the bustle of the city seems far away as you watch the boats go by.
