Ah, summer in the city. Nearly-naked commutes. Hydrant fountains. Cooling centers. That unidentifiable stench! And the heat. Oh, the heat.
Even though I woke up sweating, I wouldn’t trade my NYC summers for anything. The man himself says we’re from where summertime’s unforgettable. And it’s true.
Among the great summer traditions: free movies outside. They show ‘em all over Manhattan and Brooklyn and there are a few a week. Bryant Park and McCarren Park have popular screenings, but my favorite are the movies shown at the Brooklyn Bridge – the proximity to the water cools the air a bit, the view is beautiful and the screening site is within walking distance of Grimaldi’s, Jacques Torres and Almondine Bakery. Or I guess you could pack a picnic. Just don’t forget the booze.
This week’s movie under the bridge is Annie Hall (I know, right?), screening at sundown on Thursday.
