GP Team’s Summer Spots
by Beth Kaiserman

Lisa DePasquale, accounting:

Coney Island! There's a new restaurant called Kitchen 21. Of course Ruby's, once rated one of the sexiest dive bars. There's a DJ on the beach every Saturday and Sunday.

Mark Russell, executive chef:

Prune Restaurant; there are big windows that they open.

Mike Deuel, executive sous-chef of catering

Saturday Smorgasburg is great!

Raquel Jacquez, The Sylvia Center:

Prospect Park! Central Park has a lot of tourists; it's a nice alternative for a large green space to have a picnic or hang with friends.

Erika Lesser, The Sylvia Center:

Riis Park Beach Bazaar. There's pizza, salads and a clam shack. You're still in NYC but it's nice enough to feel like you'd have to travel further to get here. It feels like a gift each time!

Kaitlin Walsh, design:

Stormville Flea! It was an old airport landing field. There's sections of food, antiques, and garage sale flea market. I've gone every year of my life with my family.

Katherine Mok, marketing:

Tacoway at Rockaway Beach Surf Club for fish tacos!

Stefanie Zaitz, Katchkie Farm:

My family's farm in Duncannon, PA!

Hugh Chan, staffing:

Columbus Park to work out. People from nearby precincts and courts train there. Everyone goes to work out for their lunch break.

Carly Katz-Hackman, event planner:

My couch, inside, with A/C and cats. (It's a pregnancy thing.) Otherwise I'd be at Fort Tilden, where I met my husband over cucumber gin and pulled pork sandwiches!
