J and I spent last weekend in New York hanging out with some of her Vietnam friends and discussing the relative merits of the Upper East Side:

We went out to Coney Island on Sunday, where we enjoyed some Nathan's,
went on some rides,
saw plenty of good reasons why bikinis should require a permit,
and best of all, went to a Brooklyn Cyclones game (ahh the days when Baseball was innocent...and cheap).
J was the last of the first 2,000 fans and got a little stuffed bear in a Cyclones uniform
All in all, a pretty nice couple of days. I like New York more each time I go and it's super fantastic to actually have some friends living there now.

So, for now, here's lower Manhattan from the Q Train crossing the Manhattan Bridge at sunset:
