Seth Meyers, Taylor Schilling and Jason Collins on Summer Hangouts

Taylor Schilling (actor, Orange Is the New Black)

“I love to be near the Hudson in the summer, and I enjoy all the outdoor activities you can do over there. My favorite thing is probably biking along the river.”

Jason Collins (NBA basketball player, Brooklyn Nets)

“For me, it’s all about family. I love hanging out in the Tribeca/Battery Park area, because I have a lot of family over there. You can also get to Brooklyn easily, where I have even more family!”

Colin Jost (head writer, Saturday Night Live)

“I like to go for a bike ride up the West Side Highway to the Boat Basin. It’s the perfect summer activity.”

Reinaldo Leandro (architect, Ashe + Leandro)

“I frequently go to the Ear Inn, because it feels very sailor-y and it’s right on the river. It’s just wonderful to be outdoors and stay in my neighborhood. We have a lot of good restaurants nearby.”

Laure Heriard Dubreuil (CEO and founder, The Webster Miami)

“I love going to Sant Ambroeus in the summer and sitting outside with my friends. Some people hate the summer in the city, but I love it. I also spend part of my time in Miami, so it’s a good balance.”

“I would have to say Prospect Park. I like to go roller-skating, walking and running, but I also love bird watching! The wild falcons are amazing; it’s major theater.”

David-Michel Davies (president, The Webby Awards)

“I have been in New York for about 10 years, and I’m still a big fan of the Frying Pan. On a sunny day outside in the summer with a burger and a beer, I still think it’s a great thing.”

Valentina Zelyaeva (spokesmodel, Ralph Lauren)

“I take my bike out and ride around Manhattan. As far as food goes, Bar Pitti is a great Italian spot downtown so my girlfriends and I head down there. They have nice outdoor seating.”

Martha Hunt (model)

“It would be Café El Portal. It’s a great meeting spot in Nolita. Mexican food is a good summer staple, and they have the best margaritas!”

From a roof terrace with a bottle of Champagne to an outdoor restaurant or biking along the Hudson River, these are the spots to hunt New York’s elite this summer.
