Summer Stops

NY1 and the Mornings on 1 team invite you to be a tourist in your own city this summer. Introducing "Summer Stops," a weekly exploration of the city's most beautiful, entertaining and vibrant spots, simply a short stroll away from local subway stops.

As anyone, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, could tell you, there's nothing like summer in the city. The five boroughs has so much to offer tourists and locals alike, but we at NY1 understand that residents may not be interested in hitting all of the obvious spots. There are 472 subway stations here, but doesn't it feel like you get off at the same five to 10 over and over again?

No one knows the nooks and crannies of the city like Roger Clark. This summer, he's taking on a tour of some less obvious alternatives for day trips throughout the city. The catch? All of these places must be within roughly a mile of a subway stop, meaning you don't have to accumulate too many steps to get to these seminal New York locations.

Have you visited any of these places? Be sure to chime in to the conversation on social media with a photo - and tag #ny1summerstops when you do it.
