‘Staycation’ ! Coney Island’s Annual Mermaid Parade

June 20, 2010 Leave a comment

It was just a hop, skip and a jump (actually an hour and a half on the F line) to get to the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island Saturday. It was well worth the trip. The parade was less crowded than I thought and a lot of fun. One of the great things about living in New York City is that during the summer the beach is just a subway ride away – how much easier can it get than that? No traffic! Just some loud, excited talkers in your ear during the journey! Of course, another nice thing more specifically about Forest Hills is that if you have a car we are just a hop, skip and a jump to the beaches of Long Island.
