Today is officially the first day of summer! Whoot whoot! We made it!!! For summer fun, I wanted to link back to the complete Cup of Jo Guide to NYC featuring where to eat, sleep, shop and play, as well as a very romantic date idea, a secret playground and how not to look like a tourist. Hope you enjoy it! xo

it's funny to think that today is the first official day of summer, seeing as how where i live (austin, tx) we've been feeling the high 90's for about a month! summer, please be kind to us.

I cannot WAIT to take full advantage of your suggestions when I visit New York next month. I'll be blogging about it here: http://www.fullbellywornsoles.com/

Love it!

And dear Jo...it's time to take some well deserved maternity leave and take it easy for now! ♥!

We are coming to New York next week, so this is very timely! Enjoyed the tips on how not to look like a tourist. I'll do my best ;)

Sarah said...

Do New Yorkers wear straw fedoras?? It seems like a new yorker thing, but maybe thats just what us southern folk think new yorkers do... visiting and want to fit it! ;)

Hi Jo—the very first photo on this post (the Highline photo) is ours. Would you mind crediting it appropriately? Thanks.

Karlee said...

Happy first day of summer! Is it weird to already be ready for Fall? lol

McKenzie said...

I absolutely love your guide! If only I was going to New York so I could put it to action! I just watched the doo-wop group you saw, and I reckon it must be experiences like that, that also make New York so alive and ongoing! I love the first photo on this post too - such a lovely place!

Thanks for this! I am visiting the US for the first time in September starting with NYC with my boyfriend! I am SO excited! I hope the weather will still be hot then, is it usually? X

Christian said...

If anyone sees this and knows, is NYC in July a good idea, weather wise? We would be coming from Austin where its 100+ degrees, wondering if it would be cooler then that (still really walkable?) I've always been in the late fall so I have no idea what to expect but hubby and I are looking for a quite anniversary weekend getaway. Thanks in advance for any inside scoop!!!

Christian said...

*quick, not quite!

Smith And Ratliff said...

Christian, I live in Manhattan now, but I'm originally from Texas and can tell you that NYC—even at its hottest—is immensely more bearable that a Texas summer. The hottest days are in the mid-90s, but more often the highs are going to be in the mid-high 80s. I still walk around in the summer, so if you're used to Austin heat, you'll be just fine. :)

Christian said...

That was what I was hoping someone would say, THANK YOU!

Joy said...

Ino's closed! Completely broke my heart. That sweet photo makes me miss it :(

Anna Black said...

JO- can you do an updated post in the near future, featuring where you like to go when you visit your sister in SF? My fiance and I are going there on our honeymoon and would love the tips ... where to shop, eat, sleep, anything! xo

Thank you for this! My husband and I will be visiting NYC for the first time in August so I'm really glad for this guide! I'd like to skip all the touristy stuff, and try out some of your suggestions. The comedy night and cheese classes sound awesome! I also have birding in Central Park and watching a Shakespeare play in the Delacourt Theatre in the plans!

I love this guide. The first time I came to NY was in the summer but we're thinking of spending Christmas there this year... Obviously it's just a suggestion but a winter NYC guide would be absolutely amazing! - Hol

Heather said...

I would love to visit New York, I will check out the guide :)

This is my third summer living in NY and I still feel like there's so much I haven't done! I have two young boys, but for the summers they go back to visit their grandparents, so we save up everything non-child friendly for while they are away... I'm going to have to review this for ideas... (Grand Central whispering wall is one of my favorites I learned from your blog. I tell everyone who visits here to check it out.)

I love these ideas! We are constantly exploring the sites, sounds, and smells of the city. Life in our tiny apartment in the Village can get cramped so we want to stretch out and run as much as possible! Central park picnics, east river bike rides, ping pong in the east village, it never ends.
