The 15 best spots in NYC for outdoor grilling

By Devin Gannon, Fri, May 26, 2017

With Memorial Day Weekend just around the corner, it’s hard not to imagine the taste of savory barbecue food like hot dogs and hamburgers, chicken wings and corn on the cob. And while our tiny apartments in New York City may not always be the greatest spots to host a barbecue, the city’s parks provide some of the best places to get your grill on this summer. Ahead, 6sqft rounded up 15 of the best parks to host outdoor barbecues, from old standby Prospect Park to less known locales like Clove Lakes Park in Staten Island.

In a city where hundreds of interesting happenings occur each week, it can be hard to pick and choose your way to a fulfilling life. Art Nerd‘s philosophy is a combination of observation, participation, education and of course a party to create the ultimate well-rounded week. Jump ahead for Art Nerd founder Lori Zimmer’s top end of week picks for 6sqft readers!

Summer jams mean we do things a little differently in the art world, assuming most of the population escapes the hot city streets each weekend. Thursday and Friday nights are the art-heavy celebrations of the art openings we love to see and be seen at.

Explore the pop-color collage world of Anthony Iacono, or a real life Facebook status as performed by Katya Grokhovsky, or become part of the performance with Quinn Dukes’ “Mapping Ritual.” Friday it’s time for the je ne sais quois, first with an exhibition and Edith Piaf’s 100th birthday at Dejavu Gallery, then a free screening of a Tunisian love triangle, “Goha.” If you’re still around Saturday, spend the day meeting your makers at Open House New York’s open studios across the city, or settle into the air conditioning of the Guggenheim and explore the wild wild world of Matthew Barney in an all-day film screening.

588 West End Avenue, Riverside Park, wraparound terrace

Something about this West End penthouse feels like a Florida vacation home. It’s surrounded by a fully planted wraparound terrace on three sides, and there’s plenty of light from large windows and oversized glass doors. Plus, it has some high-end finishes that make this $775,000 unit (yup, a penthouse for well under $1 million) really stand out.

316 West 82nd Street, Riverside Park, old-world touches, roof deck

Something about this charming pre-war co-op at 316 West 82nd Street makes us feel like we’re on the set of a Woody Allen film. The two-bedroom pad is nostalgic for its 1910 inception with graceful lines, exposed brick, and quiet views of the well-maintained early twentieth century buildings outside the windows.

Let’s take a look inside, here

131 Riverside Dr. #7B, The Dorchester, Neville and Bagge

A professor of Politics at MIT has just sold his Upper West Side co-op for $5 million, $50,000 over asking, according to city records. The 7th floor apartment at the Neville and Bagge-designed Dorchester has been renovated to include pristine modern finishes, while still embracing the home’s original details from over a century ago. Some of those details include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and elegant mouldings.
