“I love New York on summer afternoons when everyone’s away. There’s something very sensuous about it — overripe, as if all sorts of funny fruits were going to fall into your hands.”
Ironically, most tourists visit New York in the summer when the locals usually get off of work at 1 p.m. on Fridays and escape to the beach or mountains. You wouldn’t think that in one of the hardest-working cities the majority of people would get these “summer Fridays,” but it’s true.
To mingle with locals (and for optimal celebrity-sighting), visit New York in the summer mid-week!
