BBG!!! (Brooklyn Botanic Gardens)

A few weeks ago me and some friends went on a lovely spring day to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. For those who haven't been, it's definitely worth checking out, especially on a nice sunny day, here are some shots of all the cherry blossom tree's blooming and one of my favorite Japanese gardens (the other one being in Golden Gate Park, in San Fran)

Brighton Beach/Coney Island

On a recent relatively warm day, my friend ryan and I went on an excursion to Brighton Beach (take the B or Q all way to the end, about 50 minutes from manhattan) in search of good Ukrainian food and a stroll on the board walk. We ended up at Cafe Glechik for lunch which was mind blowingly good!!

we had the green and red borsht
the meat pelmini's (dumplings)
veal stuffed cabbage (my favorite!)

after we went on a stroll on the boardwalk and went to the NY Aquarium!!! ( which was ok, it was definitely a little run down but the jellyfish exhibit alone is worth the trip...
