I love that island. It is a great part of NYC life. If you want to meet the new yorkers, please visit the island.
Here's a few drawings I did and some photos I took. I was there for only 2 hours or so because it took me more time to get there (subway weekend schedules). Yes, I did so non-new yorker thing. :)
TIP: Please check MTA for subway route. It is THE weekend. also Pack your lunch because the line was very long and it is good for picnic. Get the blankets or a jacket temperature maybe down later afternoon. People who was waiting at the ferry there's only 2 restrooms = long waiting line but Once you are in island there's huge restroom and no line. :D
Oh, One last thing. If you have a cycle , go for it. It is very nice to go around riding it in the island. :D
Just for fun, I wanted to post the French Carousel I saw when I was in the Paris. See How magical it is!
