June is like, the best. The anticipation of Summer. The fun of the outdoors. Lizzie’s birthday. The fact that it’s not July and so New York City doesn’t smell like a shoe. Get out and do something that’s not JUST eating and drinking. What do you say to that?

June 1: MoMa’s Party in the Garden

Nothing will make you feel more NYC Summer chic than partying in the MoMa’s sculpture garden and dancing the night away to music spun by a live DJ. This is what makes NYC cool.
