Guys, we hate to be the ones to break it to you, but somehow it's already August. 

Yeah, we don't get it either. But rather than have an existential crisis rooted in the absurd nature of time itself, let's just take a deep breath and look on the bright side: the last month of summer has brought with it plenty of the season's most-anticipated events. From a magical outdoor dance party to the ultimate comeback concert, there are plenty of reasons to embrace what August has to offer in NYC.
