We try to get out and about – while our house is now riddled with boxes and things are tucked away. Washington Square Park in the NYU-Greenwich Village area of Manhattan has the best rope-play area these days… which looks even prettier with fallen leaves around it. And I love that someone always rolls a baby grand piano out to the park to play it, or leave it for someone else to play!
(Check out the park’s piano man and music scene in this clip here.)

Even though we are not moving too far, I will still miss all this activity right outside our apartment door. Nothing like a lazy Sunday morning with a Bolivian Parade marching by in amazing costumes and performing dances right at your door!

We’ve lived near this television/movie studio for years and always wanted a glimpse inside! One weekend the studios opened up their movie magic secrets to the streets and had a family day outdoors… where we got to man a camera, watch stunts, and play on a street full of movie snow and rain. We ran into our friends the Foleys who were also learning tricks to the trade.

I found these older photos in my camera… from the beginning of September back when Governor’s Island was open and the art fair was going on. The kids loved the interactive talking robotic goat, and African music and dance. There was a jump rope jumping contest (that E&Z’s dad did surprisingly well at!) We will miss it now that the cooler weather is moving in.

This fun little amusement park lives in Wollman ice skating rink in Central Park – but only while the weather is warm. We try to get there once a summer at least. Sadly it’s closed now but the ice skating rink will return soon I’m sure.. too soon!

While exploring Avengers Land in Times Square the kids ran into a dad from the lake on the televised screens around the exhibit (I guess he has a part in the movie)! Ezra has recently been interested in Transformers so this show went over big for him – AND there were interactive games to play, so it was a bit like our Sony Wonder Lab trip only with more working stations to explore.

I have some catching up to do on blogging about what’s in my camera .. will have more summer fun to show next week!

Good thing they are opening up the hydrants in our streets… cooling off NYC style:
