Sailing Away From Summer

Hi all! As Saturday slowly slips away, so does summer. It’s so hard to believe it’s August! But as many of my younger friends head back to college, the reality of adulthood is sinking in more and more. Fall is fast-approaching, but luckily the warm weather is hanging around a bit longer, so it’s important to make the most of it.

One of my favorite places in New York City is Central Park. It’s amazing to think that in the concrete jungle there is almost an entirely different (GREEN!) world spanning hundreds of acres. When I was a kid, I used to climb on the little rock formations with no cares in the world (other than an occasional scraped knee). Maybe now I’m not “rock climbing” anymore, but there is something special about the (somewhat touristy) upper-Manhattan oasis.

One of my favorite things to do in Central Park is go out on the pond. There’s something so pleasant and relaxing about drifting along the water and watching the ducks, young couples and turtles out on the water — even if you occasionally play accidental bumper-boats with other people on the pond. It’s only $15 for an hour of doing something that you really can’t do anywhere else in the city. So, while Pumpkin Spice Season lingers around the corner, I recommend taking advantage and heading to the Central Park Boathouse!
