One of the best parts of living in NYC during the summer are all of the free outdoor movie screenings that take place. This summer is no different, with an excellent selection of blockbusters, family favorites, cult classics and indie flicks.
Pack up some snacks, grab a blanket or a low chair, and head out to watch some of your favorite movies outdoors overlooking staples of the city like the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River, Brooklyn Bridge, the Intrepid and more.
