The dog days of summer are here—and it's all about enjoying the outdoors while trying to stay cool.
Here are five ways to do that in Harlem and beyond. And, yes, each is 100% The Curious Uptowner-approved:
1. Catch a sunset at these three waterfront destinations. The West Harlem Piers became the fun new summer destination last year with the opening of Baylander Steel Beach, a floating bar and restaurant on a decommissioned Navy ship. It joined two other uptown spots with amazing views of the Hudson.
3. Pick up a seeded watermelon from the Black Seed Brothers. Head to the northeast corner of Lenox Avenue and 139th Street and grab a sweet, seeded watermelon from this beloved Harlem street stand. Refrigerate and enjoy.
