New York City 2007 - Day 2

Today, we got up and headed out to Coney Island. It was about an hour ride by subway. The weather was not so great-really windy and overcast. We had a great time anyway. The water is VERY cold-not at all what we are used to. We visited several famous NYC sites. Billy and I estimate that we walked more than 8 miles today!!!

Headed out to the subway-this is the way we traveled around NYC. Cheney had a great time riding in the stroller, his feet didn't get tired, but ours sure did.

Looking out at Brighton Beach

Playing in the surf-he didn't get very deep cuz it was COLD!!!

Making a sand angel

Playing around in the sand

Washing off at the public bathhouse

Buying hot dogs at the famous Nathan's Hot Dogs
Eating hot dogs-Cheney declared these the BEST HOT DOGS he has ever eaten!!

Billy and Cheney resting after eating hot dogs

The lunch crowd was huge at Nathan's

The Wonder Wheel is almost 100 years old!

Cheney was REALLY excited to ride this ferris wheel, but Mom was REALLY nervous!!

Buying ice cream and cotton candy on the boardwalk at Coney Island

Unfortunately, Cheney was still too short to ride the Cyclone Rollercoaster. Uncle Jeff said that is a good thing because it is very painful.

Cheney did ride the "Freefall" at Astroland.

After Coney Island, we headed over to Chinatown to do some shopping. Mommy needed a new purse and some sunglasses. This is the door of the firestation in Chinatown.

Lisa and Cheney discussing where they wanted to eat dinner.
On day 3, we are visiting the Statue Of Liberty. Check back for updates.
