Our favorite ways for spending a June day in NYC.
1 Park It
When darkness falls, stage lights illuminate a Shakespeare play in the heart of Central Park (pictured).
2 Place a Bet
Thoroughbreds race to the finish line at Belmont Park on Long Island. The Belmont Stakes Festival is June 8–10.
3 Feel the Beat
All month and all over town, the Blue Note Jazz Festival swings.
4 Party at The Garden
Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull and John Legend perform at Madison Square Garden.
5 Nourish the Soul
June is National Soul Food Month, so take the ‘A‘ train to Harlem for some finger-lickin’ eats.
