Coney Island

Here’s a little SAT prep for today: Paris is to France as Coney Island is to _________________.

Coney

the world! of course.

We had lunch and spent the afternoon in Coney Island today, stopping by the New York Aquarium for the first time. It was a great day, although we still miss the batting cages that have been razed in preparation for some sort of yet-to-be-revealed development. Other institutions like Nathan’s hot dogs and the “Shoot the Freak” game were still thriving, so all was not lost!

Not sure if we’ll make it back for the Mermaid parade, but we’re glad we trekked out before moving from the city.

Slide

On Thursday we went up to Croton-on-Hudson to run some errands and check out our new neighborhood. There’s a wonderful park on the Hudson with a fun slide we had to try. The stop-motion feature on our camera came in handy to capture the fun of going down the slide (alone!)
