What’s more American than a slice of pie on July 4th? Apple may be ye olde standby, but Emily Elsen—who opened Brooklyn’s beloved Four and Twenty Blackbirds pie shop with her sister in 2009—has plenty of suggestions for alternate fruit fillings with a more modern bent. Lavender, meet blueberry. Paprika, meet peach.
Summer in New York begins the moment the first fire hydrant gets cracked open. Soon, neighborhood pools will be packed with kids playing hooky on the last few days of school, and even the most homebodyish New Yorkers will venture out for a little sunbathing in the park. Pull out your brightest prints, dust off your boombox, and head to Sal’s for a slice. It’s summertime and the livin’ is, indeed, easy.
Thanks for almost everything. (When you’re ready to part ways with your ‘69 Camaro, just let us know.)

We’re planning on spending the summer sipping delicious beverages outdoors—rooftops, poolsides, anywhere really—and it seems that great minds think alike. For Deborah Lloyd, kate spade new york’s Chief Creative Director, it’s all about authentic bellinis and orchards of cherry trees. Why yes, we’d love to join you, Ms. Lloyd.
