Beat the Heat: Favorite NYC Ways to Cool Down After Moving in The Summer

It’s no secret that summers in New York City are uncomfortable at best, and unbearable at worst. Despite this, lots of residents find themselves in the position of having to move during the summer months.
If a summer move is on your radar and you’re already looking forward to unwinding and cooling down after all is said and done, here are a few ideas for how you can do just that after moving in NYC during the hottest months of the year.

Catch The Cool Breeze at The Coast

There is plenty of coastline around NYC to enjoy after a hard day’s work moving apartments. The breeze off of the Atlantic is sure to refresh your overheated body, and you even have the option of enjoying it several ways.
If you’re all about sticking to a budget (especially right after a move), simply visit a beach to cool off at the end of your moving day. If you could use a little luxury after your move, enjoy one of the many coastal restaurants or bars that NYC has to offer. Whatever you choose, a little ocean breeze will snap you right out of your inevitable exhaustion.

Imbibe in a Slushie at Mother’s Ruin

What could be better than a frozen drink on a hot day? A frozen drink at the end of a hot day spent hauling all of your belongings to a new apartment. Lucky for you, Mother’s Ruin can help you take the edge off of a stressful day with one of their cold concoctions.
Not only will these spiked slushies calm all the nerves that accompany moving, they will physically chill you out as well, which might be even more valuable during the humid New York summer.

Cop an Ice Cream Cone at Sugar Hill Creamery

If you’re interested in a more PG treat to help cool you off after your move, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Sugar Hill Creamery. This family-owned ice cream shop has any sweet treat you could possibly be craving after a long day of moving.
Whether a cone, shake, or malt is your preferred style, Sugar Hill Creamery has you covered, and that sugar rush may just supply the energy you need to start unpacking.

Hire a Moving Company to Avoid Overheating in The First Place

Obviously there’s no shortage of great ways to cool down in NYC after a summer move, but wouldn’t it be better to avoid the discomfort of excessive heat in the first place? NYC movers can minimize your exposure to dangerous heat by doing the heavy lifting for you—but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy one of these ways to unwind at day’s end.

We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

Great group of MOVERS.

The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
