Beat the Heat
Ah, summer in the city, when all you want to do is spend lots of time outside—until you’re outside, when all you want to do is ... stop sweating. The Shops at Hudson Yards have you covered either way. Quite literally, in one very important sense: To keep those UV rays from taking their toll on your precious outer layer, head to Level 3 where Kiehl’s and Sephora offer premier sunscreen options for all skin types.
Stop in at Heidi Klein (Level 2) to shop all the latest swimsuit styles from the British retailer before you set out for some urban sunbathing.
Remember, though, hydration is everything on the sultriest dog days, so grab the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle and on-the-go water purification system by LARQ at b8ta (Level 2) while you’re at it. When things do get too hot to handle, a cookie ice cream sandwich at Van Leeuwen Ice Cream (Level 3) chased by an iced coffee from Jack’s Stir Brew (Level 4) will have your body temperature back to normal in no time.
Or, if you prefer a little shopping with your brain freeze, hit up Kith Treats (Level 2), where you can peruse racks of modern streetwear while nursing a scoop of soft-serve vanilla (don’t skimp on the cereal toppings!).
You can count on the city’s hottest new neighborhood to keep things cool.
