There really is nothing going on this weekend, at least that I can find. Sure, there are tons of samples sales, barbecues, etc. But nothing that really sings to my heart as sustainable.
So, let’s switch it up! Now is a great time for me to tell you all the amazing places you can go this summer that aren’t one-time-only.

Prospect and Central
I couldn't omit these two classics from the list. Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, offers a ring of shaded paths for picnics with a heart of wide open space for playing frisbee, volleyball, and getting sun. Meanwhile, Central Park is larger, with a wider variety of woods, lawns, and more food options that range from organic hot dogs to your basic fudgesicles. Both offer an close and easy getaway with none of the newfangled pomp of the High Line or rooftop farms.
What To Bring: A big picnic blanket and a frisbee.
