summer beach house

Come summer time, New Yorkers start scheming ways to beat the heat and get out of the steamy city. My ideas revolve around local beach trips or a day trip up the Hudson River.

Some people go big (very big) and rent beach houses for the summer.
New idea: try to befriend such people.

Jill, I've just been exploring the idea of renting a house on fire island for a week and I was blown away by the cost of such an endeavor. I've settled on day trips too.

Love the pics of that house, one can dream!
