Stranded in the city? Four city adventures without the crowds


sartorialist-governors-island

You were looking forward to Labor Day weekend—the empty city would be your own personal playground. But now, the weekend is upon you, you forgot to make plans, and suddenly you feel stranded. Take strength. We’ve come up with a Well&Good play-by-play to keep you active during summer’s last sigh.

SWIM
Last call for water. After Labor Day, the City’s 14 miles of beaches and 52 outdoor pools will be closed until next summer. That means right now beaches are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and pools are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

BIKE
Governor’s Island future may be uncertain but for now it’s a biker’s paradise. Free bikes and flat terrain make this a veritable Amsterdam in Manhattan’s shadow. Bike along the car-free routes and pack a picnic to enjoy on one of its many lawns. (There’s no place to buy food.)

FLY
You’ve been meaning to give it a whirl since the” Sex in the City” episode: Trapeze School. This is the weekend to finally just do it. There’s an extended schedule with many slots still open.

FORAGE
Anyone can jog in Central Park, but few can forage for mushrooms and wild spinach here. Join wild-food expert Steve Brill for a 4-hour traipse on Labor Day and go home with a dinner of chicken mushrooms and wild greens, berries, and apples. It gives new meaning to eating locally. Call (914) 835-2153 by Sunday to book a spot.
