The heat wave has subsided for now in New York; that means more excuses for us to get out of our air-conditioned apartments for some
walking shopping. In other cities, there are color-coded cafes, micro architecture lectures and talks about shoes in Jamaica. It’ll all make more sense after the jump.
See our past weekend guides here.
