TAKE A RIDE ON THE WONDER WHEEL


oh coney island. well, it's kiiiiind of disgusting, but it's also kind of charming and sweet.

also we did watch a man insert a spoon into his nose on the sidewalk. i mean, that was worth the hour train ride out there for sure.


























p.s. huck on the train ride home.

  1. SO DARLING! Anytime a movie has coney island in it, I die a little inside. It looks so fun! Kind of like the East Coast's version of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Only I think Coney Island came first. But anyway. Adorable pictures!

  10. I'm in love with those pictures of you and Huck! Those overalls are so cute--I feel like those pictures will be ones that he looks back at when he's 40 and will think: "Wow, my mom is so beautiful."

    WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO SMALL? I want those platform shoes, but I have giant feet now that I have had a baby.

  13. I went to Coney Island on my trip to NYC last year...I loved how it was run-down and a bit old-skool (I do wish I'd seen the guy with the spoon up his nose though).

  16. I've never been, and I always kind of imagined it to be more magical and much much... cleaner? And livelier? Hmm. In other news, Huck! He's a cute one!

  18. hehe, I think part of the appeal and charm of Coney Island is just how very grimy it is.

    that said, I can't believe you managed to capture such beautiful pictures of the place. Like how!? It's so gross!

  22. Is it bad to say that half the reason I read your blog and follow your Instagram is look at all the adorable and hilarious pics of Huck? I hope my kids {that I'll one day have} will be that freaking adorable!!! :)

  25. FUN!! My grandfather (who is Italian) grew up on Hudson and Canal in NYC and tells stories of weekend trips to Coney. When I read your blog, I realize what a historic place NYC is and how many people forget that. I always enjoy your blog because I feel like you really appreciate New York. My grandfather moved to SC where he met my grandfather (and had 6 children) but NYC was always home. And he's go back to Little Italy and walk into some of the same old shops and recognize old-timers who'd call him "Lenny!" And the stories! Oh the stories!

    I love reading yours too!

  26. oops, I meant "he'd go back" not he's :))

  27. Oh, this made me think of this song, by Miss Tess (based in NYC, I believe).

  36. I was so stoked to score some of your cool clothing but alas you are a shade smaller than I am. Boo! The aquarium and Coney Island are totally worth that L-O-N-G train ride at least once a summer. Any more than that and I nearly go crazy with the "Are we there yets?" Lovely photos, lovely family, lovely you!
