Best place to start “nontouristy” trip around New York? Washington Square Park! This park has amazing dark history, but today you can relax from the hustle of the city and tourists, listen to street musicians; without a doubt, your visit will give you plenty of people to watch. This part of Manhattan originally was considered as a “village” At the end of the eighteenth century, this part of the city was turned into a mass grave for people who died from yellow fever. It is estimated that in the grounds…read more
We got summer weather so we are blowing off the steam on the beach:)
Independence Day is very happy and important holiday in the USA. The whole weekend people are meeting over the barbeque with family or friends by the beach or pool. In the evening firework show is a must! It was the first we took Lukas to watch the fireworks and we were not sure how he’ll react, but he loved every minute of the 30 minute show.

Strawberry season has ended, but nothing is lost! The summer has only just began. Every year we are going to “pick your own” strawberries on Long Island, but this time we went upstate New York City to the Farm Fishlill. The farm besides strawberries (Lukas had great time picking strawberries) later in summer there is “pick your own” cherries, blueberries, peaches and of course apples. Also, there is a little store selling local products and ice cream! And everything on a hill with beautiful views. W’ll definitely return. http://www.fishkillfarms.com/
Saturday was cloudy and rainy, but we took a risk and went to the beach! Got the ball and kite and we had so much fun!
Ok, we are getting boring, again and again we go back to the same place, but there is so much to do that it’s hard not to go back Again park at the downtown Brooklyn! And there is a second location in our favorite pizza – Fornino ..But the slides at the playground hidden in the jungle of bamboo are our favorite!
Bike season has already begun a few weekends ago, but this time we wanted to see what was happening on the other river Manhattan – Hudson River. I hope this weather will stay with us forever.
