we had a very new york weekend this time, centered around a day trip to coney island. not only did i get to eat a hot dog and ride the cyclone, a favorite roller coaster, but we also rode a roller coaster where the seats are horses! if i thought my day couldn't get any more perfect, it did, real quick. coney island is a must visit in my book - if not your first time you come to nyc, then the next. it's gotta be on the list. i'll admit it's seedy and has some unsavory characteristics, but it's a classic, it's fun and you get to eat a hot dog at the original nathan's. trust me, it's a must see. after all that fun we laid low - having a quiet pizza dinner with friends, followed by a lazy sunday, complete with a delicious brunch.
so back to work we go - too bad i can't ride a mechanical horse to get there.
