NYC Summer Plans

New York is one of the dream destinations to live in. We all know starting a new life in a foreign country is not easy. You have mixed feelings: you are so excited and a bit scared at the same time. Everything is new and you have to adapt fast in the city that never sleeps.

If you are already there, that means you have already passed the tough part related to the Visa and all that paperwork… So, now it’s time to enjoy your time there!

For an Architect this is a very interesting city, which you are sure to enjoy. There are many cultural activities going on daily and some of them are free! We recommend even just walking around in this cosmopolitan full of diversity.

We would like to share with you some other ideas for your free time this summer:

Bryant Park Summer Film Festival. You can attend the free cinema sessions on Mondays at 8 or 9 pm. You can bring your own picnic, relax in the grass and enjoy a movie with the beautiful scene of the surroundings. Our tip: Arrive early to get a good seat.

Shakespeare in the park: One of the best free things to do! It runs from May 23 through to August 13 from Tuesday to Sunday at 8pm at the open-air Delacorte Theater in Central Park. The tickets are free, but you can check and see the schedule here.

US OPEN tennis: From August 28 to September 10 at Flushing Meadows. It is New York’s most-attended sporting event. You will find all sorts of food trucks and restaurants on site, live music performances and probably some of the best tennis players in the world. You can check the tickets here.

Beach Days: You have a lot of options for your sunny getaway! Think Long Beach, Brooklyn and Queens. They have easy access by public transport and it is probably one of the best ways to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the urban jungle and reconnect with nature.

We also have some exciting news for our participants! We have created a network to connect all you young architects in our programs so you can help and support each other! Exchange valuable information, organize trips and plans together, share tips about the city and just… have fun knowing you have friends there with you!c
