It's the first full week of summer! What better way to celebrate than an afternoon in the sun in Lincoln Square? Our neighborhood has a ton of outdoor spaces at which to enjoy the weather. Benches at each Broadway Mall end cap allow visitors and residents to relax with our colorful backdrops, as pictured here, and there are also a number of benches surrounding Dante Park's lush interior. Or, enjoy our movable tables, chairs, and shade umbrellas in our two parks for a nice lunch or to read a book! And, of course, don't miss some of our great summer programming listed below.
