It’s not exactly “Green Acres,” but New York City is giving visitors and city dwellers plenty of reasons to get outdoors this summer.

From catching a Shakespearean performance in the park to sipping organic watermelon juice-infused cocktails on a rooftop bar, Gotham is ripe for the taking. Here, a sampling of homegrown things to see and do for out-of-towners or locals attending the spate of fabric and sourcing trade shows in town the next two weeks.


Manhattanhenge

Central Park is a prime spot for stargazing, but Midtown is the place to be Wednesday night at 8:25 p.m. to catch Manhattanhenge. This visual spectacle arrives when the setting sun aligns just so with the island’s street grid, casting a radiant glow of light across Manhattan’s skyscrapers north and south of every cross street. Photographers should make their way to 42nd Street for optimal shooting. Amateurs and professionals are encouraged to share their handiwork with the American Museum of Natural History’s Manhattanhenge group on Flickr.
