Money Island

Winter is too long in NYC, so today will be a day for a denial post… And the first image that comes to my head ‚when I think about summers in New York, is Coney Island. I love this place, even though I wouldn’t get in the water over there, nor lay down on the sand !

It can get a little crowded as well during summers’ heatwave:

The Iconic Wonder Wheel…

…Reminds me of Paris (jardin des Tuileries)

I like also all the handmade typography you can spot there , very retro feeling :

Freaky 🙂

Even in the winter, it keeps a very cinematographic look & feel:

And in the summer it has amazing saturated colors:

Only in NY

After reading the article from the Voice about the 50 reasons I love living in nyc I though I could add up the typical NYC images that still makes living in NYC

Chinese take-out boxes

Something’s always happening here. If you’re bored in New York, it’s your own fault.-Mirna Loy
