Manhattan may not have the sprawling yards you’d find in the suburbs, but that doesn’t mean the city lacks the opportunity to spend time outdoors this summer. From private pools to yoga in the park, Manhattan is replete with activities that will get you outside while keeping you active and entertained. Those who call 555Ten home will find themselves at the intersection of some of the city’s hottest outdoor activities this year, with the building’s central location putting a wealth of fun at their fingertips. If you’re in the need of a change of scenery this weekend, make sure to check out these exciting outdoor activities:
Drop-in to a Yoga Class
Make this weekend a namastaycation by checking out a yoga class in Bryant Park. The perfect drop-in class for yogis of all levels, this easy yoga series is a supportive environment where you can improve your practice, boost your flexibility, and bond with your neighbors right in the heart of Manhattan.
Grab Some Drinks at the Frying Pan
Beat the heat this weekend by heading over to The Frying Pan for drinks on the river. This docked former Coast Guard vessel turns into one of the city’s most energetic bar scenes in the summer, offering live music, great food, and a long list of wine, beer, and cocktails.
Take a Jog Along the Hudson River
Get that blood pumping and those endorphins flowing by taking a meditative jog along the Hudson this weekend. The cool breezes off the water make Hudson River Park the perfect place to get in a workout, and, unlike Central Park, where you’ll be vying for space with dozens of other joggers, the jogging paths in Hudson River Park offer an oasis of open space.
Take a Dip in a Rooftop Pool
The thought of trying to brave a public pool or secure a Soho House membership at the last minute is enough to make even the most intrepid New Yorkers anxious, but finding somewhere to cool off is as easy as walking outside your front door at 555Ten. The building’s gorgeous rooftop pool is the perfect place to get in a few laps or relax on one of the summer’s scorching days. Even if you’re not in the mood for a workout, the private cabanas on the building’s roof deck offer peerless views of the Hudson River and make for the ideal spot to catch up with friends or get lost in a good book.
Catch a Movie at Hudson River Park
Celebrate New York’s cinematic history in style this summer by checking out the open-air screening series in Hudson Square Park. From Academy Award-winning films like Moonlight to family-friendly flicks perfect for parents and kids alike, this screening series is a great way to enjoy the city this summer. Make the most of the amazing city you call home this weekend by celebrating enjoying the countless outdoor activities it has to offer. Whether you’re lounging poolside or practicing your inverted lotus in the park, there’s no better way to enjoy the warm weather.
