Forget spring fever - it's summer fever in the city, with the Daily News and Post giving their pick-up suggestions for New York singles. The Daily News lets women know where to pick up certain kinds of guys with 25 bars: Jocks and wanna-bes (places with TVs); young professionals (Pastis, Whisky Blue); firefighters (ale houses); alterna boys (Sweet & Vicious, Baraza); prepsters (Automatic Slims); muscle men (go outerborough). The Daily News is trying to help those girls who are not models find guys who are not looking to date models - i.e., normal girls looking for normal guys. Gothamist just wants to say, ladies, just don't run around the city clutching this list.
The Post is gives an overall look at the city's parks hook-up potential for both sexes, giving the "vibe," "types," "prime time," and "pick up line" for the city's outdoor spaces, like Union Square Park, Tompkins Square Park ("Hipster girls wtih Chihuahuas...dressed like Karen O, while guys wear trucker hats with their sheepdogs"), Fort Greene Park, the Great Lawn, and the Sheep Meadow - for example, you can find writers not working office jobs if you go to Prospect Park during the day. Bring it on, bring it on.
