Dawn and Leo invited Colin and I to check out a newish park in Long Island City. It is a short subway ride away from us (Colin loves to ride the subway) but the great part about this area is that it is right on the water, overlooking the Upper East Side and Midtown. I imagine that this area's revitalization started while NYC was in the 2012 Olympic bid, because the park seems like it was designed to impress. It is full of large grassy ares, built in lounge chairs and benches, hammocks!, and has two different playgrounds (which we never made it to because the boys enjoyed running free in the grass so much.) This park is defiantly worth returning to again (despite having to carry the stroller up the stairs at Vernon Blvd). Here are some pictures from our morning in the park.
