New York City…

I’m in New York for 9 days to goof off a bit before I fly to London, which will mark the real beginning of my Europe tip. Gillian has been nice enough to put up with me for the time I am here. She lives in Park Slope in Brooklyn, which is super nice. It’s exactly what Hollywood paints New York to be in every romantic comedy. Streets are littered with brownstones, beautiful people wandering everywhere, and plenty of trendy restaurants and cafes. My kind of place!

Prospect Park is at my disposal about a block away. Most of Sunday was spent there eating lunch, people watching, and of course sleeping in an attempt to recover from the prior days drinking marathon in Rochester, aka Park Ave Festival. On Monday I dragged my ass out of bed to join Gillian for a run. Yes I hate running, but I have taken this hideous sport up to replace the void of bike riding. I have to say the more running I do the less I hate it, but it’s definitely not fun. Oh how I miss my Orbea…

I don’t really feel like blogging today so I’m just going to leave you with a few pictures from yesterdays trip to Coney Island. The Cyclone is well worth the trip, and there’s talk of shutting down Astroland so if you are in NY this summer you should make an effort of heading down there to experience this slice of history.
