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.

  1. I love all of these photos – how incredible and inspiring! I have to go next time I’m in town… too bad I don’t have an adorable little one to bring along.
