Following on from my last post- the second part of our second day (what a mouthful)- was spent paying a little visit to New York's very own seaside superstar, Coney Island. A combination of all things twee, kitsch and wonderfully traditional about the seaside- Coney Island felt like a combination of Margate's Dreamland in it's prime and everything wonderfully bright and brilliant about Brighton too. Think hot dogs, ghost trains, sandy promenades and lots of candy floss and popcorn! Typically, being the Brit's that we are- we managed to bring the grey rainy weather to the coast with us too- but it certainly made us all the more determined to keep a smile on our faces- it wasn't that chilly after all- plus, meant we pretty much had the park to ourselves (and could've whizzed straight to the front of queues too, cheeky)!

After circuiting the park, and concluding it was a little too windy for a seaside stroll (you can probably tell from my mop, that the wind truly did me no favours)- Joe and I paid one more visit to the rides, discovering a certain Zoltar from one of my favourite films, Big! Although I can't be sure it was the exact one, I was careful in my attempts to not turn into Tom Hanks- and instead headed to the subway for a little shelter from the rain, and a trip back to the city before an evening of delicious dinner and catching one of our favourite bands, Wolf Alice- you're a good 'un New York!

  3. Ah that film! I'd forgotten all about it until you reminded me. The dress is dreamy and I'm mighty pleased that the Laden Showroom option you've linked is already in my wardrobe. Woo hoo! Gorgeous pics Liv, makes me want to go back to NYC in an instant!

  11. The dress is perfect for a seaside visit, I always think beach and sea when I see stripes! It really does look as bright and brilliant as Brighton, I'm glad to hear you had a good time even if the weather wasn't the greatest, because just like you said there is a silver lining to that which is that you and Joe got to get on the rides quicker!

  39. Your photos make Coney Island looks so beautiful and peaceful! I'm loving all the bright colors :) They put me right in the mood for summer! A few years ago I was at summer camp, and someone had the bright idea to schedule a mandatory Independence Day celebration at Coney Island. It was cool having that American experience, but getting to the subway after all the fireworks was an absolute nightmare! :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
