Saturday, August 17: Summer Streets
Lace up your sneakers and grab a Citi Bike for the last day of wide, open (traffic-less) spaces down Park Avenue, Lafayette Street and Centre Street.
From Park Ave. at E. 72nd St. to Centre St. at Park Row
Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18: The Jazz Age Lawn Party
Bust out your best cloche: Tomorrow and Sunday are Governors Island’s final ’20s shindigs of the season ($30). While you’re there, take a spin on the antique bicycle carousel at Fête Paradiso.
Ferry leaves from the corner of South and Whitehall sts.
Thursday, August 22: Vertigo in Brooklyn Bridge Park
For the thrill-seekers in the bunch, this Hitchcock gem will be Brooklyn Bridge Park?s second-to-last showing. The final film on August 29 will be chosen by public vote. (Our money?s on Lost in Translation.)

Thursday, August 22: O Brother, Where Art Thou? in Tompkins Square Park
But it?s not just the major parks getting in on the nostalgia. The Odyssey-inspired Coen brothers flick is a classic in its own right and perfectly fitting for the
East Village film fest.
Tompkins Square Park, Ave. A and E. Seventh St.
Saturday, August 24: Pig Mountain: Pig Roast & Veggie Fest
Anything that’s deemed a “punk-rock pig roast” has to be good. Make a day trip out to Narrowsburg, New York (on the Delaware River), for the low-key but shockingly gourmet food fest from 14 NYC chefs. Tickets are $30 with proceeds going to the National Young Farmers Coalition.
Friday, August 30: Fireworks at Coney Island
Did you know this happens every Friday night through the summer? Labor Day weekend is the grand finale, so be sure to stretch out seaside before then. A turn on the Cyclone followed by a loaded Nathan’s Famous never hurts, either.
W. 15th St. and Boardwalk W.
Well, we’re in the home stretch, folks. But whether you count the 17 days until Labor Day or the 37 until the official start of fall (we’re gonna go with that one, thanks), there’s still plenty of lazy afternoons to savor and food on a stick to be had.
