More Information About Summer in NY

As the temperature rises, so does the fun in New York.

Even in the concrete jungle of New York, there are lots of ways to have fun out of doors. This is prime baseball season, so head up to the Bronx for a Yankees game, Queens for the Mets or out to Coney Island for the minor league Cyclones. If you would rather swing the bat yourself, New York's many parks will be packed with visitors and locals enjoying the great outdoors (Central Park, Brooklyn's Mccarren Park and Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens are just a sampling of NYC parks with ballfields). It’s also the best time of year to head up to the viewing deck at the Empire State Building and the Top of the Rock for 360 degree views of the city skyline.

When you’re ready to cool down, head inside museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art to explore summertime exhibits such as the French Ceramics collection of Robert A. Ellison Jr. or the inaugural exhibition of the newly renovated Costume Institute, which explores the work of fashion genius Charles James. The Museum of Modern Art is another world-class institution with an ever-rotating cast of exhibits. If you are in Times Square, Madame Tussauds, Ripley's Believe It or Not and Discovery Times Square (home to Body Worlds and the new Marvel Avenger's S.T.A.T.I.O.N.) are great for a break.

And, of course, Broadway is hot all year round. Check out Tony-winning musicals 'A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder' and 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' as well as long-running hits like 'Wicked' and 'The Phantom of the Opera.'

If you’re not sure where to start, consider purchasing a New York Pass or an Explorer Pass, both of which buy you admission to New York’s top attractions, plus sightseeing tours that will help you get there.
