I found the place to be if you wanna have a vacation feeling out of the City, while still beeing in New York City. Coney Island, Baby! A beach and amusement park in southern Brooklyn.
I enjoyed it so much to feel the warm sand between my toes and to see the width of the Atlantic Ocean and the beach compared to the narrowness of the hectic City.
Now that it´s gonna be summer soon I will definately vistit this place again... not only once!
