Summer in the city will soon be reality ……..hopefully. Last year, brought New York City the fourth wettest summer ever. The winter wasn’t so rough but the spring hasn’t really sung. Let’s hope for a summer that truly sings this year. Speaking of summer, the unofficial first day of summer in New York usually starts in the Upper West Side. Not something you would expect to hear from a long time Brooklynite who hardly ever frequents the UWS.
The most consistent New York City food event returns on May 17th and 18th.
Taste Upper West Side returns for the 12th year with the same format. Two days of food, drinks, music and straight up fun. Friday night will be Summer in the City. Expect to tickle your tastebuds with some picnic and summertime favorites. On Saturday, brings back the ever-popular Best of the West. Best of the West will have some of the top establishments from the UPW under one roof.
