'Tis the season for dining on the river! Boat-restaurants are opening up their decks, including The North River Lobster Company, which offers trips on its three-story yacht and a summery menu by executive chef Gil Martinez that includes mouth-watering lobster rolls and an indulgent raw bar. All you need is a boarding pass for $10 to hop on the boat and go for a sale. Just check northriverlobsterco.com for sailing times.
When the sun is shining, New Yorkers from all walks of life leave their apartments and convene all over the city to indulge in the best things to do outside in New York. Of course, we've got no shortage of outdoor bars and restaurants, where you can soak up some much-needed vitamin D while you gorge and imbibe, but there are also plenty of other activities offered at NYC parks as well as several outdoor performance series to catch. When the temperature really rises, you'll want to cool off while visiting the city's beaches (although currently closed for swimming, there are open to the public). Whatever activity you choose to partake in, don't forget to bring along your sunglasses, sunblock and mask.
