Memorial Day in the City: What to Do if You're Stuck Here?
May 27, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele
If you're like me (who is moving this week and has TONS of packing left to do) and are stuck in New York City for Memorial Day, how can you get a piece of the summer sun while roaming this urban jungle? Central Park is an option as is the Gansevoort rooftop pool, but it's difficult to shake the feeling of wanting sand between your toes. Luckily we're still on the coast, and plenty of beach options are a quick train ride away. If you've never been to Rockaway Beach, this is the weekend to go. Not only can your unlimited Metrocard get you there, but a slew of delicious Brooklyn food vendors are opening on the boardwalk for your eating and drinking pleasure. What to wear and consume while there? Click through for my picks.
