We would never try to convince you to do any summery physical activity other than putting a cold beer to your lips. But these accessories might.
You’re a pedal pusher. A curb hugger. But when it comes to your gear, you’ve still got training wheels on. The new Dutch Master bike pays homage to BMX and is built by hand in NYC (hands belonging to the gal who runs the Bushwick Bike Shop). If you’ve already got your own cycle, swap cheap seats for limited-edition Brooks England saddles.
Ping-Pong camp starts today at Spin. The sporting club has up to fifteen tables, a pro shop, and locker rooms (lest you need to shower after a heartbreaking loss). The bar and health-centered restaurant should open this summer (along with date nights).
Rooftop Farms is Greenpoint’s 6,000-square-foot produce garden on top of a former bagel factory. Now that it’s harvest time, spring onions, leafy greens, and scallions can be picked up at the industrial farm stand (or you can volunteer with the farmers on Sundays). Erase evidence (in two weeks) with an indoor composter.
Stuck inside? Improve your rock climbing skills and take advantage of your high ceilings with Ferran Lajara’s industrial design piece called Hanger (making it easy to get to those hard-to-reach places).
Just don’t work too hard.
