The Coney Island Art Walls Project is worth the long ride on the F train in itself. Trust me, if you appreciate art, you will walk away inspired. Get thee to Coney Island this summer.

An afternoon at Coney Island

Being the history buff that I am, I was so excited to visit Coney Island for the first time yesterday. It’s been on my bucket list of “things to do in NYC” for years, so I have no excuse for why it took me so long to visit. After riding the F train for what seemed like an eternity, we got off at the very last stop and stepped into what I can only describe as a mashup of the past 30+ years—it was amazing and beautiful. We walked along the boardwalk, explored the beach and the piers, and then walked through Luna Park. I rode the most terrifying ferris wheel of my life, the Wonder Wheel (the cars swing). I also braved sitting front seat of Cyclone, Coney Island’s infamous wooden roller coaster constructed in 1927. That ride was so rickety and fast that we felt like it could jump the track at any second. I can’t wait to visit again soon (minus a camera and wearing something more practical than sandals and a dress) so that I can go on every single ride in the park (except Zenobio – I have to think about that one).

This corgi is seriously happy that summer has finally arrived…and that I just shared a quarter of a watermelon with him.

Speaking of watermelon—is it just me, or is watermelon the new avocado toast?

Madison Square Eats – a recap

A few weeks ago we wandered over to Madison Square Eats and spent the afternoon sampling amazing bites (and sips) from local vendors. The vodka-infused watermelon from Asia Dog was our favorite cocktail—it was vodkasoup bomb, we are still talking about it to this day. And the infamous Roberta’s Pizza was as tasty as it looks. I’m beginning to believe the best eateries in this city reside across the bridges in Brooklyn.

Oh and hello, my favorite purple flowers that look as though they came straight from the Lorax are now in full bloom.

Happy Friday

I saw this painting/mural by Bradley Theodore in Soho in last week, unfortunately I didn’t have a wide angle lens on hand to capture the full beauty. Le sigh…

Feels like spring

It’s starting to {slowly} look and feel like spring in New York and that makes me soooo happy. I was starting to go crazy with all the constant 9 degree morning commutes to work. #soho
