Soak in the City Sun All Memorial Day Weekend in NYC

Soak in the City Sun All Memorial Day Weekend in NYC

Kickoff Summer Over Memorial Day Weekend in NYC

Every New Yorker's favorite time of year is almost here. In NYC, Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of all things summer. BBQs in the park, bike riding, sunbathing, sunny patio day-drinking, partying under the stars at rooftop bars - when winter lasts as it did this year, you can bet we'll be soaking in the season in every way possible!


Feel the Breeze On A Complimentary Bike Rental

Guests at Hyatt Union Square New York are invited to explore summer like fitness-savvy locals do - pedaling the city's nearly 400 miles of safe, interconnected bike lanes, starting with the one right outside our door. As you zip through the streets, just remember to respect pedestrians and obey all traffic signals. Nothing's better than taking in the skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge, or feeling cool air in your hair along the 5-mile Hudson River Park bikeway. Just ask our Concierge for a map, and hop on your ride whenever you're ready!


Over 1,700 Parks to Soak in the Sun

Hidden beneath NYC's towering skyline are an incredible number of public spaces dedicated to rest and recreation. Whether you crave peaceful quiet, or a lively scene, there's a perfect park for you. For an iconic summer experience, slather on some sunscreen and lie out with thousands of other half-dressed revelers in Central Park's Sheep Meadow. If you want to add a little culture to your Memorial Day Weekend, venture to Washington Square Park for its biannual Outdoor Art Exhibit. And on Sunday, be sure to make it to Smorgasburg in Brooklyn Bridge Park for waterfront eats and drinks from nearly 100 of the city's most visionary chefs, crave-worthy restaurants, and tasty food trucks.
