Summer in the city?  It's the perfect time to explore New York City's parks, where the outdoor sculpture is free for you to enjoy, the grass is green, and you're always just steps away from the city's famous burgers or ice cream shops. 

EAT

Best Burger, Greatest Ice Cream?  How to tell? Well, these places are where there are always lines of fans.  So, you be the judge:

ICE CREAM

Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream 
2 Rivington St - Lower East Side
Near to New Museum of Contemporary Art.  A very popular shop.

Big Gay Ice Cream
61 Grove Street - West Village
Very clever fun concept, which first came from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in Los Angeles.

BURGERS

Black Tap Craft Burgers
529 Broome St - SoHo
A small space, and the line goes to the corner, but everyone looked really happy.

J.G. Melon
85 MacDougal St - Greenwich Village
A classic New York cafe with their own iconic burger.

Shake Shack
Madison Square Park (Madison Ave at East 23rd St).
While they now have shops everywhere, try their original location within the beautiful Madison Square Park.
