‘Tis the season for fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers! During this time, I love visiting the NYC Union Square Farmers Market to check out the fresh produce & plants that the upstate farms are bringing to the city. Not only are you accessing the best produce in season, but you’re also ensured that it’s coming form a sustainable environment.
Please enjoy these photos as a beginning to the colorful assortment of healthy living!
Problem: summertime in NYC. It can be hot and painful, especially when it lacks bodies of water to cool off.
Solution: catch a breeze by renting a bike and riding along the East or West side. You get the breeze of the rivers and fast speed of bike riding! (Not to mention a great work out and stress reliever!)
Don’t have easy access to a bike? No issue! You can rent bikes from various locations in the five boroughs. If you’re in NYC and on a budget, check out the various great discount sites, where you can get 1/2 price rentals, (such as one I purchased through Buy With Me).
There’s nothing like a great bike ride where you can start in Central Park and wind up on the Brooklyn Bridge. Where else can you travel such far distances to see such amazing sites at the same time?
Why not make the day a little more exciting than watch the kids play in the park!
Summertime in Madison Square Park brings music and activities to the area, with an emphasis on children’s events. It’s a great way for children to meet other children and be stimulated by the outdoors and their surroundings.
