Summer Heat: Not Sweating It!

We scream for ice cream! The heat has arrived and we are glistening and blistering as our skin is soaking up the sweet summer rays!  For some of us the heat is a respite from the cold winter months, for others not so much…seriously NOT so much. While the heat can be unbearable and even oppressive, we do not have to hide indoors! Here are some chill worthy ideas around NYC that will leave you feeling as cool as ice!

Enjoy a Scoop of Ice Cream

..

Ice Cream is a great summer treat so when it’s too hot outside, a hot fudge sundae (despite its name) might just do the trick. Tough day at the office? Forget Happy Hour, stumble into Tipsy Scoops barlour for alcohol- infused ice cream. Let’s not forget about our two favorite Ice cream men: Ben & Jerry. Ben & Jerry’s have several locations throughout NYC, so treat yourself to a Chunky Monkey cone. Take a trip across the bridge and head into Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory in Dumbo or take a class at Ample hills creamery Gowanus location.

Submerge in Cryotherapy

..

Cryotherapy exposes the body to sub- zero body temperatures. This 1 – 3 minutes body freeze will not only keep you cool, but also packs health and beauty benefits. It helps increase metabolism, boost collagen, reduces pain, and alleviates muscle soreness. Treatments start at $75 at Kryolife in midtown. Not ready to take a full-body plunge? No sweat! Try a five-minute cryofacial instead.

Become a Beach Babe

..

Let’s not forget the traditional summer activity: The beach. NYC is home to many beaches, so pack your sunscreen, or bring the sun tan oil. Coney Island beach not only offers sand and water but fun rides and greasy food for the whole family. Hop on the LIRR and walk along the toasty, silky smooth sand of Long Beach. If a crowd is too much for you, choose among NYC’s private beach clubs.

Rooftop Swimming

..

Make a splash into the Gansevoort Meatpacking Hotel rooftop swimming Pool. You don’t need to be a guess at this posh Hotel to use their rooftop swimming pool, just pay a small fee. If rooftop swimming is not for you, cannon ball your way in one of many pop up swimming pools like the Astoria Park pool.
