If you live in the New York tri-state area, you’re lucky when it comes to fun and often free summertime events. Here’s a list of things to do in the coming months — and bonus: most of these wonderful cultural events are free, so consider hiring Hoyt to take you there and home in safety and style.
Bryant Park. Situated behind the New York Public Library in midtown Manhattan, between 40th and 42nd Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues, there’s always a ton of fun and free events going on all summer long at Bryant Park. From yoga and Tai Chi to dance classes to classic movie night, Bryant Park is a natural and cultural oasis. For 2014 events, dates and details go to Bryant Park’s website.
Central Park SummerStage. Since 1986, the SummerStage at Central Park has been a summertime entertainment tradition. The artists represent a breadth of genres and cultures and perform in an outdoor setting accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. The City Parks Foundation also offers free sports instruction to more than 13,000 children and 1,000 seniors annually, at over 60 parks citywide. For upcoming SummerStage events and other free events, visit SummerStage.org.
Girls’ Day Out in the Hamptons. City girls, are you craving some time out of the city and at the beach? Ready for some beach time? Shecky’s is hosting another Girl’s Day Out and Wine Getaway in the Hamptons and the North Fork this year on Saturday July 12. This year, they’re adding a BBQ lunch at the event for The Wine Getaway combo or as an upgrade. Buses leave from NYC at 8:30 am on July 12 at 6th Ave. & Spring St. Another similar event is being held Saturday, Aug. 16. Visit sheckys.com for details.
The Metropolitan Opera Summer Recital Series. The Metropolitan Opera, in conjunction with the City Parks Foundation, will feature six free concerts from June 23 to July 10. This year, the Summer Recital Series returns with six performances in the parks of all five boroughs, starting with a concert at Central Park SummerStage on June 23, featuring rising opera stars soprano Amber Wagner, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, and tenor Russell Thomas, accompanied by Dan Saunders.
