Delve into the city summer.

Be a tourist in your own town.

You might as well join the fun, since the rest of the world is coming. Especially this year, when 2019 marks the arrival of World Pride, a celebration of the Stonewall uprising of five decades ago.

That won’t be the only game going. This is the season when the steamy streets offer fairs, events, culture, tunes, trips and many surprises. New Yorkers know, too, that this is when, with the neighbors off on that European getaway or at their country house, it’s the best time to nab the corner table at a favorite restaurant.

Our annual summer guide mixes the big-time, big-city events and cultural offerings with the little things that lifers love about Manhattan, from the ceramics class for the teenager in your life to the Ecuadorean food cart in your favorite park.

You can have small-town summer moments without ever leaving the nation’s biggest city.
