How are your pickling skills? I'll take a jar

Some suggestions:

-http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/summerstreets/html/route/route.shtml

-https://www.facebook.com/ConeyIslandSandSculpting

-http://www.brooklynflea.com/markets/
(I recommend the Smorgasburg down by the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Great views of the NYC skyline and good food. You can also explore the park.)

-Agree with a previous post, check Time Out NY a few days before you come to see what is going on.

-Also check the schedule for the Seaport:

If you're staying through Saturday check out the Jazz Age Lawn Party on GovIsl. 5000 attendees per day, two band stages, loads of dancing.

I have a lot of friends that go to that Jazz lawn party. Such an incredible hassle to get there and back.

So, the pattern this summer has been, every Monday a new high pressure / high humidity Gulf air mass comes in and builds to a wretched Wednesday, cools slightly to a still massivly uncomfortable Thu-Fri, then is much nicer on the weekend when I can wear shorts and t-shirt, but is back to gawdawful by the following Monday-Fri when I have to wear a suit.

Also, it gets immensly better whenever I leave town, but then returns to awful the moment my plan lands in the Tri-State area.

Thanks, New York!

And, the AC in my house konked out last night.

I was never much bothered by the tech people in the Bay Area but they have gotten exponetially douchier in the last 18 months. I think I prefer the New Left. I know I prefer the hippies.

A lot of the douchey tech guys are popping up in NYC as well...
