New York City has been slammed with two stifling heat waves already this summer, and we aren’t even halfway through the season. Yes, we should have seen this coming, and yes, it’s “supposed” to be hot, and yes, it seems like we were just complaining about the unending winter, but none of that makes this trip to the sun in a dragon’s mouth any more comfortable.
Hopefully by now, you’ve installed your air conditioner without wreaking havoc at street level, and you’ve devised some kind of pants mitigation program. But you don’t want to be in debt to ConEd through the fall, you don’t want to let the weather dictate your fleeting free time, and your plan to spend these hot days and nights at the movies . . . may have slowed. Send that heat index straight back to the hell from whence it came with these heat-beating summer fun recommendations.
