Posted By Olivia Chen On May 29, 2009 @ 3:30 pm In Blog links,New York City | No Comments
Whew! Summer is definitely just around the corner. We can feel the humidity intensifying with each day in New York City and we know it will only be a matter of time before the heat will really be upon us. With that thought in mind, we thought we would start looking at some ways to keep cool without blasting the air conditioning or using more electricity — and we found some pretty neat innovations and are excited to see what else pops up over the summer!
Last but not least, our favorite way to cool down is still to find a shady spot under a tree !
