The sun is shining and the city is revving up for another sensational summer with its music festivals, outdoor markets, theatre performances and more. Welcome the summer season with a Memorial Day getaway to The Lucerne and beat the heat in the coolest way possible.

Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, The Lucerne is a European-inspired oasis within easy access of Memorial Day happenings. Consider taking in one of the city’s many parades across the boroughs, or head over to Brooklyn for the most famous—the 149th Kings County Memorial Day Parade.

The Memorial Day Commemoration held at Riverside Park is just moments away and features a Procession at 10:30 am, led by the New York Scottish Pipes and Drums, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in period uniforms and the Veteran Corps of Artillery. Meet at Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument and join 23 veterans, heritage and patriotic organizations as they lay wreaths at the Monument, including American Legion, Navy League, Daughters of the American Revolution, Sons of the Revolution, Jewish War Veterans, and Montford Point Marines.

Take some time to retreat to one of NYC’s iconic parks for a picnic or nap under the trees, hang out at one of the city’s hip rooftop bars while taking in the skyline or head to the coast for some fun in the sand and surf. Memorial Day also coincides with Fleet Week in New York with its Parade of Ships, Navy Band concerts and more.

If you prefer to spend your Memorial Day weekend indoors, consider The Lucerne’s extensive onsite offerings, including 24-hour room service, in-house spa treatments, a daily wine reception, complimentary Wi-Fi and easy access to acclaimed dining at Nice Matin.
