Ready for October.
It just keeps getting worse. And worse. And worse.
NYC TRIP: From Afar
You don’t realize how grand this city really is until you take a trip to the top of 30 Rock or look across the river from Brooklyn and take it all in. We had such a great time in this city and I can’t wait to go back again soon.
NYC TRIP: Shops and Museums
There is so much art and culture around every corner of NYC. We made the most of the time we had, visiting as many small shops and museums as possible (Society of Illustrators, Toy Tokyo, Midtown Comics and Cotton Candy Machine to name a few). As both a nerd and an artist, I was lucky to leave that city with a dime left in my pocket.
NYC TRIP: Coney Island
I’m glad we found the time to make it out to this historic seaside amusement park. While much of the original Luna Park and Astroland is long gone, it’s nice that a couple classics like the Wonder Wheel and Cyclone are still around to enjoy.
There’s one regret I have from my recent trip to NYC and that is not making it over to the 911 memorial. All the more reason to make it back there someday. We did however catch a fleeting glimpse of Freedom Tower on the train to Coney Island.
My latest. I shall call him Son of Wampa.
NYC TRIP: Times Square
Sure it’s touristy, full of chain restaurants and stores you could find at your local mall (not to mention insanely crowded), but Times Square is something you have to see at least once on your first trip to NYC. Being in the middle of it all is pretty surreal.
