I don’t know about you, but the warmer the weather gets, the more appealing the ocean becomes. As beautiful as it may be, New York City can become an absorbing heat-trap among the asphalt and concrete between the tall buildings and narrow streets. When the weather gets unbearable, I recommend exploring the city in an alternative way- take one of many New York City cruises to enjoy the sun, the breeze, and of all importance, the views.
This summer from July 29th to August 25th, the annual Harlem Week Festival will take place in New York City.
