For the time I've spent in New York City, I haven't done too much venturing to the other boroughs besides Manhattan. A couple weekends ago, I spent both Saturday and Sunday in Brooklyn. Saturday, I went to the beautiful Prospect Park for Tropfest, a short film and music festival. It was very relaxed -- people were laying out on blankets and listening to music. I love it! Prospect Park was gorgeous. If you're looking for an expansive NYC park to explore, I highly suggest this one! There was an algae-filled pond with a waterfall, and shady walking paths.
Sunday, I took my long-awaited trip to Coney Island. I've wanted to go for a while but never made it out last summer. It was exactly what you'd expect: a little trashy, a little touristy, a little cheesy. But overall, a great place to spend an afternoon, and an easy way to get to the beach via Subway. The lines were long at Nathan's, and I don't eat hot dogs, so we grabbed a bite at Ruby's Bar and Grill next door on the Boardwalk. The food was so-so, but it was a fun beach bar atmosphere.
