WAYS TO SURVIVE THE HEAT IN NYC

Let's talk...about the heat. Summer hit and the sun is not holding back, even if it is almost September. Every weekend, I fell like I am melting as soon as I leave my apartment (my full time job provides ample amount of Air conditioning that I sometimes wear a blanket at my desk). As I've lived in New York for 5 years, I've learned a thing or two about how to survive the sweaty train stations, living with no AC, and activities at an affordable in a non sticky way. SO, below are my top suggestions on where to go in order to survive the HEAT and places that won't break your bank.

1. CHECK OUT A MUSEUM

My two favorites I have already written about. Of course I am talking about The Whitney and The MET. If you're looking to cool down all day chose The MET, if you are only looking for a couple hours chose The Whitney.

WHITNEY

2. IF YOU CAN'T BEAT THE HEAT...

Well, go to the beach! My go to is Coney Island (article here). Other beaches around New York include Long Island, Jones Beach, Asbury Park, Sandy Hook, Rockaway, Orchard Beach, Fire Island, Hamptons, and Montauk. Check them all out here

3. CHECK OUT OCULUS

Not only has this turned into a mecca-mall, it is the only subway station with air conditioning. Stores include Kate Spade, H&M, and of course a giant Apple store.

Oculus is also connected to Brookfield Place (in Battery Park), a mall that has many more stores and good places to eat. It's a great place to bring out of towners too!
