The biggest event of all was the surprise wedding of our son at St. Ann's Warehouse, beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. We thought we were going to a play! Minutes after this photo, high wind and heavy rain descended on the small wedding party.
My favorite bridge
Our two sons at the reception in Queens
Our three visits to Brooklyn always included viewing the Brooklyn Collective...amazing street art
Our son lived in the Bushwick neighborhood for 10 years; we stayed in an Airbnb in Bushwick

Little Skips -- morning coffee and cookie every day
Our son, who is chef at a restaurant in the Lower East Side, took us on a quick-paced tour of that amazing location where immigration shaped the area..and New York City. This is Chinatown.
Little Italy borders Chinatown. I had my first cannoli here!
Our new daughter-in-law works as a fit model in Farmington, Long Island; after her work, we drove east through the Hamptons to Montauk, the easternmost point of Long Island on the Atlantic Ocean.
Another afternoon trip was to Coney Island, an hour-long trip by train. We had a hot dog at Nathan's and deep dish pizza later.
The boardwalk on Coney Island is wide and clean.
One of my favorite locations is the Brooklyn side of the East River, looking into Manhattan (World Trade Center #1 aka Freedom Tower is the tallest building.) The newlyweds were our drivers.
