Hi Everyone,

Summer is in full gear in New York with sweltering temperatures of 99 and above.  It’s enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk wish it was enough to melt the fat away..HA! Wishful thinking. 

The weekend is approaching and I gather your wondering where to bring the kids for some much needed relief from the heat.  I gathered some information on several pools within the area that are either free or at a low fee. Below are links to locations of different pools throughout the five boro’s.  I’ve also managed to include Long Island.  Beaches are also open,  I prefer Jones Beach but if transportation is limited for you Rockaway beach is pretty cool now adays.  Stay within the beach 96 – 101. That area is family friendly besides it has this great Empanada/Arepa place called Caracas.. There delish!  There a bit pricey but so worth it.

Lastly,  don’t forget that sunblock.  It must be applied every 30 minutes.  Now since were going to the beach, I wanted to include a task that will work well while your sunbathing and enjoying the sun with the kids.  Why not put on one of those head scarfs bring it down little towards the middle of your forehead, something colorful and don’t forget to dab on lipgloss and pretty earrings..  Looking good is feeling good… StandupLatina and be Proud!
