We are halfway through summer, with the whirlwind of July slowly getting behind us. August feels so close, a reminder that what we may love the most is often what ends far too soon. Like the first few months of a baby’s life, the thrill of lost teeth, and yes, a city summer.
If you’re visiting New York this summer, or just kicking around and need a few ideas, here’s my Brooklyn Summer City Guide..
- Walk along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade .
- For an early day activity, take the ferry to Governors Island
- Before retiring for dinner, take a quick evening ride on Jane’s Carousel.
- Enjoy some of my favorite pasta at River Deli in a family-friendly environment.

I need to do all 4! Thanks for this and I love the curls around the O in your name.
Thank you! So glad you’re enjoying it!
Oh, River Deli! One of my favorites. The mushroom pappardelle! I dream of it from our new life in California…
Ahhh! Come back. Come back. I hope California is treating you well!
