If the weather allows it and you like the markets, I invite you to discover the superb market of Smorgasburg.
You will be able to mix with locals and tourists, and taste small delicious portions at each market stand. Tacos, pâtisseries, drinks, ice cream and ice cream sandwiches will delight all palates!
In addition, you will find a whole lot of ideas for making 100% local gifts, such as jams, tea, or local candles.

Whether you are in New York City with family, friends or with your partner, you will undoubtedly love Coney Island. But if you visit New York with kids, you owe it to yourself to go to Luna Park in Coney Island!
Nothing could be simpler to get there! Take the subway to Coney Island Stillwell Avenue station, then take Surf Avenue and here you are! It takes about an hour from midtown Manhattan.
Once there, you will find all types of rides, such as bumper cars, roller coasters, a Ferris wheel, a haunted house and many other surprises. And if there is one attraction that I absolutely recommend, it's the Ferris wheel, also called the Wonder Wheel. The latter rises to 45 meters and has 24 cabins from which you can admire the superb view of the city. So don't forget your camera, and keep your eyes open!
Note that Luna Park is open every day, generally from 12 p.m. to 20 p.m., between March and October. That said, I still advise you to find out about the schedules in advance, in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
Then, once you've taken your tour of Luna Park, why not attend Nathan's Biggest Hot Dog Eater Contest? A great cliché, but so funny!
And to finish your day, go for a walk on the beach, 6 kilometers long. Enough to end the weekend in style!

And if you want to visit the park more seriously, I recommend that you see the statue of Alice in Wonderland, near 74th Street. Kids will love it!
Then go see the Belvedere castle, whose architecture is inspired by that of Scottish castles. The plans for this castle date back to the 1869th century, and its construction began in XNUMX.
