Out & About in the ‘burbs This Weekend: July 18-20, 2014

Posted on

It’s almost the weekend! There’s lots going on in the market—and in the ‘burbs—this week…

Manhattan rents hit a record high in June—and apartment dwellers won’t have much luck finding relief in Brooklyn…
Despite signs that may say otherwise, millennials want to own a home.
Rates may be up, but that isn’t deterring prospective buyers from entering the market.

Looking for a great weekend activity while you peruse the ‘burbs? Check out some local orchards and get picking! We’re in the midst of berry season, so grab your kids and grab some sweet strawberries, raspberries and blueberries right off the vine in these great spots:

In Westchester, check out orchards in Katonah or Yorktown Heights for the summer’s freshest.
Heading to Long Island? The best pickins’ are in Suffolk County—Dix Hills and Huntington, to be exact.
In New Jersey, Demarest Farms is the go-to for families all year long, with more farms opening up in the cooler months.
Rounding out Connecticut, Jones Berry Farm & Winery is the ultimate go-to for southern CT families, with the Hickories—just 10 miles from New Canaan—finishing off the list.

Enjoy the weekend!
