Summer Guide Issue Available Now

Summer Guide
There's nothing like summer in the city. With open-air concerts, alfresco dining & imbibing, and strictly city-bound adventures, we've curated a list of the hottest (and coolest) summertime activities in all the humming boroughs. Dive into sun-soaked features on where to grill, dance, party and…kayak. And, with a chill alternative to the oppressive summer blockbuster, It-director Sophia Coppola talks femme wiles in The Beguiled.
The Sofia Coppola Touch
While Coppola's films all seem to exude a wispy, melancholic quality at first glance, each pulses with a markedly different heartbeat altogether. With The Beguiled, her remake of the earthy '71 Clint Eastwood vehicle, she has created a historically rich, sensual, gothic thriller, that excruciatingly builds in pace – all from a female perspective. Musing on her often impressionist style, here one of the most talented directors of our time divulges a few of her best kept sensibilities.
New York's Best Beach Eats
NYC boasts several picturesque beaches, each with their own unique cuisine options available for famished seashore lovers. Here we take a foodie's look at the culinary prospects offered at Rockaway Beach, Coney Island, South Beach and Orchard Beach/City Island. From crispy clam fritters to deep (sea) dish pizza to luscious lobster paella to rainbow cookie doughnuts, there's a tidal wave of maritime treats to indulge in.

The Grill Next Door
Are you aware that the city hosts 68 public grilling areas, spread out across the five sizzling boroughs? As choice ingredients of the metropolitan melting pot venture out to these numerous meat-ing places each weekend, an essential social urge is fulfilled (campfire cookin' & bonding). At Pier Five, the chefs and brainchildren behind Brooklyn's scorchingly popular Win Son, Trigg Brown and Josh Ku, deliver some core lessons in truly good grillin'.

The Best Places to Kayak and Canoe in New York
With a multitude of canals and inlets winding their way through the urban landscape, some enterprising individuals have taken an aquatic approach to summertime excursions. Be it kayak or canoe (or some other floating vessel), there's a slippery slew of fun and inexpensive ways to swish through NYC's twisting tributaries.
5 Unconventional Sports and Where to Play Them
If you've got a hankerin' for displaying your unbridled athleticism this season of sweat, but simply tossing around the ole pigskin or foot-cradling a hacky-sack isn't daring or eclectic enough for you, look no further. We've compiled the most New York-centric sports we could unearth, from stickball (for the old-schoolers) to ping pong (an actual Olympic sport) to unicycling (not *just* for hipsters anymore) to a bizarro bevy of other peculiar pastimes.

Hot Times, Hot Town
NYC: Never leave! Here we take you on a chronological tour of everything going down in town this searing solstice. Catch the dance bug in June, with Midsummer Night Swing, Garth Fagan Dance & Pilobolus and the Bryant Park Modern Dance Series. Get wet 'n wild in July, with the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest, "City of Water Day," and the Burger Records Beach Bash. Hit the streets with rockin' beats in August, with Summer Streets, Basement Bhangra 20 Year Anniversary and the Jazz Age Lawn Party.
