busting out all over". So many events and exhibitions in such a small time. I'll mention a few that are off the beaten tourist track.
"I love a parade" well not me but if you do the Puerto Rican Day parade is Sunday June 10. The Coney Island Mermaid parade is Saturday June 23rd. The Gay Pride March is Sunday June 24th. There are others. These are only the beginning.
Monday June 11th is Taste of Times Square. I love this annual event but in my one armed state I shall have to pass this year.
Tuesday June 12th is Museum Mile. This is a fun but ridiculously crowded event. If there is a museum you really want to visit, go there in the afternoon and enjoy the place.Then head to the street and see if you are lucky at other places. There are some really great exhibits at the Museum of the City of New York, the Jewish Museum, and the National Academy. Don't forget to get some refreshments at the Heavenly Rest Stop. (I suspect it will be open for the festival.) Finally start at at the top with one of my favorites, Museo del Barrio (their cafe food is great!) and hear about a newcomer, the Museum of African Art - currently without walls.
"All the World's a Stage" and as this NY Times article indicates, there is lots of summer theatre in interesting places starting in June. I saw As You Like It at the Delacorte last night. I liked it a lot but then again I love Shakespeare in (the) Central Park.
Beer brewing is big in NYC and this summer, the NY Historical Society has devoted an exhibit (and tastings) to the history of Beer Brewing in NYC.
