this weekend is labor day weekend and the official end to summer, so we're going to make the most of it and try to fit all the things we wanted to do this summer but didn't have chance to into our 4 day weekend. heres a list of things that hopefully we'll be able to make a start on in the next couple of days.....

nyc summer wish list
- govners island- a small island open only in the summer and weekends just opposite lady liberty herself. apparently you can bike and canoe for free there.

- pop up outdoor swimming pools- theres a few dotted around the city for summer but i have my eye on the one in brooklyn. its right on the river overlooking downtown and has sand and everything! theres a queue to get in and a time limit as to how long you can stay in the pool, but hey, we are in new york...

- food trucks- i have to admit that i have yet to taste the delicacies of the infamous gourmet food trucks that line new yorks streets, so we'll try to hunt one down and see if they're as good as everyone says they are. 

- brooklyn flea- i have only been to brooklyn flea market in the winter when its indoors, and so am desperate to check out the outdoor one held in williamsburg, brooklyn

- smorgasburg- this is a massive food market held in brooklyn over the weekends packed with over 100 vendors. mmmmm....

- ikea ferry- i know this seems petty, but its free! you take the ferry from wall street to ikea brooklyn past statue of liberty and all. nicks agreed as long as there are ikea meatballs involved!

- far rockaways- there a new subway train up and running at the weekends that takes you from manhattan to this beach its apparently good surf. 

- coney island- i'm desperate to get to coney island amusement park mainly for some candy floss.

- citi bikes- i've been pestering nick since these bikes were up and running a few months ago to take a tour around manhattan on the 'boris bikes' of nyc. maybe this weekend i'll finally be able to persuade him. it looks like its going to be a busy weekend...better get going....
