31Brooklyn Bridge ParkFrom any spot within this 85-acre space, you’re treated to stunning, romantic vistas of the skyline as well as the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. But there are plenty of other date-friendly attractions: Stroll hand in hand along the waterfront pathway around Pier 1 (Old Fulton St at Furman St, Dumbo, Brooklyn; brooklynbridgepark.org) before stopping for a hot dog ($4) and a Sixpoint Bark Red Ale ($6) at Bark Hot Dogs’ rooftop concession stand at Pier 6 (Furman St at Atlantic Ave, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn).

38CanoingThere are plenty of free kayaking and canoeing options in New York in the summer—but you may find yourself waiting in line for hours at some of the more popular options. Head uptown to take part in the Bronx River Alliance’s programming and discover a resurgent part of New York’s natural landscape. Three-hour canoe trips (Depart from various locations, visit bronxriver.org for details; $25, reservations required) embark on select Saturdays throughout the summer. The Upper River Paddle launches from the recently regenerated Shoelace Park (Bronx Blvd at 219th St) and passes through the Bronx River Forest, the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo. If that sounds like a bit too much trouble, just turn up on Saturdays to hop in one of Rocking the Boats free, first-come, first-served rowboats (rockingtheboat.org; Sat noon; free; May 25–Aug 31). Landlubbers can also join free guided walks and cycle along the greenway.

46Classical Roving TheatreWe know, we know—those long lines for Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte can be a killer. Consider an alternative form of gratis high-class drama that’s 100 percent less of a time suck. Now in its 14th year, NYCT performs free alfresco classics in locations all over the city. This year, they’re mounting Chekhov’s melancholy comedy The Seagull in Central Park (meet at W 103rd St and Central Park West; Thu–Sun May 28–June 23, 7pm) and Prospect Park (meet at the Rustic Shelter, Park Side Ave at Ocean Ave, Prospect Park, Brooklyn; Tue–Sun June 25–30, 7pm), followed by Shakespeare’s The Tempest in Battery Park (meeting point TBA; Mon–Wed, Fri–Sun July 1–28, 7pm). Wear comfortable shoes—the company’s style of “panoramic theater” means that audiences follow performers from location to location in the course of the show. Visit newyorkclassical.org for more information.

51Dance ManhattanOn the fourth Friday of its teaching cycle, Chelsea dance studio Dance Manhattan (39 W 19th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves, fifth floor; 212-807-0802, dancemanhattan.com) opens its doors for a free lesson (call or check the website for dates). The night continues with a performance that’ll show you how it’s done right, plus the chance to mingle with all your fellow hoofers. Ballroom, swing, salsa and Argentine tango are the specialties here, so expect a whole lot of leg moving and hip shaking. Discounts are offered to newcomers who sign up for classes after their free lesson.

63Eventi Plaza at The Eventi Hotel - Thursday eveningsSpend Thursday evenings at this gastronome-palooza in the Eventi hotel’s 12,000-square-foot, tree-studded, open-air plaza, strung with twinkling lights. Snacks include Thai street food from Khao Man Gai NY, made-to-order pies from Ludlow Pizza, Vietnamese sandwiches from Food Freaks Banh Mi, and Peruvian empanadas and alfajores from Jessy’s Pastries. Wash them down with a cocktail ($12), a draft Greenport Harbor Spring Turning Saison ($6) or a pitcher ($14) from the on-site Brighton tiki bar. If your hectic workday has caught up with you, chill out with a free flick and gratis popcorn in the Brighton theater (7:30pm). Look for special events, including a New Orleans–themed night on June 6, held in conjunction with the Blue Note Jazz Festival; learn some new moves from a roving dance group and try them out to the music of live bands. Refuel with a crawfish boil or Paul Gerard’s jambalaya balls.

Afterward, follow the signs to the Cloisters, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s medieval collection, and spend some time wandering around its gorgeous gardens. (forttryonparktrust.org). The Cloisters: suggested admission $12–$25.

80Gowanus GroveBefore new property development swallows the outdoor lot by the canal, make sure to hit up at least one of this season’s Mister Sunday outdoor parties. Impresarios and residents Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin create a relaxed, kid-friendly vibe in the afternoon, spinning a good-time soundtrack to games of Ping-Pong and plates of tacos by food truck Country Boys. As dusk arrives, the energy ramps up and a fun, sweaty mass of people dance under the disco ball hung in the poplar tree grove. While we’d bet that the Mister Sunday parties will continue after the venue closes, it’s still worth enjoying the party in this soon-to-be-gone setting. E-mail mister@mistersaturdaynight.com to get on the reduced-admission list.
