It’s safe to say that last summer was completely strange. We will surely remember the 2020 summer season for social distancing, lockdowns, and feelings of anxiety. Fortunately, this summer is completely different. As more and more people are getting vaccinated, more countries are beginning to open their borders to foreigners, coffee shops and restaurants are reopening, and it seems that life is slowly going back to normal. Whether you have caught the travel bug after a year spent at home or you just want to spend time with your family, go out with your friends and have some good, old fun, here are several ways you can spend this summer.
Yesterday I made my first trip in years to Governors Island to check out the art galleries they have installed inside each room of the turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival houses that formerly were occupied by military families. Both the art and the houses themselves were mind blowing! Sponsored by NADA House (New Art Dealer’s Alliance) the exhibits end today (8/1) so if you’re interest in seeing them you need to make your plan now. Visit This Link for all the info! Be sure to follow me on Instagram@Worleygigdotcom to stay informed on all my rad goings-on around the town!
This past week I had the chance to make my first visit to the newly-opened Little Island Park, which is located on the Hudson River at Pier 55, between 13th and 14th Streets, and accessible via a concrete pier. The park is open from 6 AM to 1 AM and free tickets can be booked at the link above. Note that tickets are not required to enter the park between 6 AM and 12 Noon, so considering the demand is currently quite high, it might be a good idea to plan a trip to Little Island for the morning hours.

Here at the Worley Gig, we love visiting the Zoo and we also love things made out of LEGOS, so it makes sense that we are excited to tell you about some super fun activities going on this summer at the Bronx Zoo. Through September 30, 2011, the Zoo will be celebrating Zoofari, with awesome life-size LEGO Animal Displays throughout the park (as seen in the pictures on this post), plus LEGO Activity Stations where you can make stuff, and all kinds of other fun features and activities taking place all over the zoo. It should be a pretty “wild” time!
Full details of all Zoofari highlights are available from the Bronx Zoo’s official website at This Link. You can also buy slightly-discounted tickets online at Right Here. Zoofari!
