A little bit of our weekends in NYC! It's has been amazing 10 months living in the Big Apple, but I need to confess - I can't wait to see the summer warming up these streets!
One of the most gratifying part of my work is to get to know such interesting people and exchange experiences, culture, thoughts and see that we have so much to learn yet, no matter the age. This young girl is half Brazilian, half Chinese and is studying Global Development in Canada. When I asked her if she thinks about going back to Brazil one day, she says that there's so much she wants to study and learn and experience that she won't have time to belong to only one place in life. Just go, girl! You have the entire world to conquer!

I believe only a few tourists know, but the Staten Island Ferry is free for 24/7 - there's no need for bookings. It runs in New York Harbor between the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island. You can have a pretty nice view from the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan Financial District.
Summer in NYC gives a glow to the city, specially on sunsets (the famous golden hour). I love going out at this time and just taking pictures around the streets and see the sun shining through the concrete.
Coney Island is a symbol of American popular culture and an escaping place from the summer heat in New York City, although the beaches are currently not a natural feature - sand has been redeposited on the beaches via beach nourishment since 1922-1923.
Coney Island started to become a resort area after 1829 and Between about 1880 and World War II, it was the largest amusement area in the United States with three major amusement parks: Luna Park, Dreamland, and Steeplechase Park. Since the 1920s, all property north of the boardwalk and south of Surf Avenue was zoned for amusement and recreational use only. Luna Park closed in 1946 after a series of fires and the street gang problems of the 1950s spilled into Coney Island and the local economy was particularly damaged by the 1964 closing of Steeplechase Park.
After some revitalization, the reopening of the Luna Park on middle of 2010 and the first new roller coasters to be built at Coney Island in eighty years were opened as part of efforts to reverse the decline of the amusement area. Coney Island has been featured in many films, television shows, cartoons, theatrical plays and it hosts many events including the famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and the Coney Island Mermaid Parade.
It’s indeed a pretty interesting place and a must visit place. Just remember, the parks and rides are closed during winter.
I #showup because it's all about love and respect. Regardless color, gender, sexual orientation, beliefs... If we could see more respect and love in each other, I believe we could become better human beings one day. <3
