7 Things I’m Looking Forward to in the Bronx This Summer

Photowalk with Bronx Narratives and Dandy in the Bronx I’m really excited to partner up with these awesome Bronxites to explore Crotona Park.  Hopefully we’ll see you there!


Boogie on the Boulevard the “largest Open Streets” festival in the Bronx is back, shutting down the center lane of Grand Concourse so people can bike, do yoga, read books, enjoy live music, create art, and so much more. I volunteered at the last one, but there are still two more left this summer!

Attending Sunset Wednesdays at Wave Hill – I’m going to put my new IDNYC membership to good use at this annual summer series.

Having a picnic while watching a movie outdoors

Lounging on Orchard Beach – I don’t care what anyone says, I love Orchard Beach and have always had a great time there. The key is to be in the right section (but you’re buggin’ if you think I’m going to reveal which one that is!)

Sipping piña coladas on City Island – (usually after a trip to Orchard Beach.)

Going for a swim at the Floating Pool in Barretto Point Park – This one has been on my list for a while, but this year I’m making it my mission to get out to this unique pool at least once!
