“I’m obsessed with Smorgasburg (locations and times vary; visit smorgasburg.com for details). You always get really good eats—the s’mores from S’more Bakery are amazing—and it’s really nice to sit on the grass by the East River. We bring our own beer in coffee cups.”


“13th Step (149 Second Ave between 9th and 10th Sts; 212-228-8020, nycbestbar.com/13thstep) is the best for day-drinking because they open at 11:30am and have half-off drinks all day. My girlfriends and I go on Fraterdays [Saturdays] and get all the bro-y guys to buy us drinks.”

“I’m a huge Mets fan. I love going to games at Citi Field (Roosevelt Ave at 126th St, Flushing, Queens; 718-507-6387, mets.com). We’ll buy tickets in the nosebleed section and then flirt with the ticket guys to let us sneak into the better seats.”

“I love Rockaway Beach (Boardwalk between Beach 9th and 149th Sts, the Rockaways, Queens; 718-318-4000, nycgovparks.org). It’s just a lot of surfers. [Part of the boardwalk] is gone now because of the hurricane but we’ll still go to Rockaway Taco (95-19 Rockaway Beach Boulevard at Beach 96th St; 347-213-7466, rockawaytaco.com) for the fish tacos—they’re so good."
