Pimp your human parking spot!
Now that the social-distancing circles in Brooklyn’s Domino Park are officially a thing for summer, you can grab a perfectly round beach towel and keep to yourself in style.
Add some chic accessories — including a matching face mask, of course — and you’re all set for your time in the sun. Who needs crowds?
Good vibes only
Treat yourself to some old-fashioned fun with brightly hued picnic accessories that just scream summertime. Round up your sun-protection essentials, and top off your look with some PPE that might cover up your smile — but is sure to encourage a few laughs. Grab a to-go beverage and keep things chill with an “I Love NY” cooler featuring the late Milton Glaser’s iconic design.
