Summer is not my season. I am not built for heat. I become noticeably grumpier and find no guilt in lazing around in air conditioned climates (a rare spectacle for this ever-adventurer). I spent some time compiling a list of things I love about New York City in the summer. It's not very long. At all. It goes like this:
1.) The fact that fall is around the corner
2.) Iced beverages become readily available.
Number Two is in fact my best defense against the heat. Smoothies, iced coffee, throw in some ice cream here and there and I'm as close to a happy summer camper as can be. So come, come beat the heat with me -- or at least take a look at these very cool pictures.
