    ** Mommy and Me Classes in Bay Ridge or nearby  **

     

    • Go to Coney Island – amusement park, beach, restaurants & the original Nathan’s. Visit Luna Park for games and rides (you can get discounted tickets online here) or Deno’s Wonder Wheel which has rides for the smaller kids (you buy the tickets in sheets there).  Don’t bother going to the aquarium – Hurricane Sandy  hurt the aquarium and it still hasn’t been fully restored. Parts are open, but it’s not as much as they had and the aquarium is $$$
    • Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (people in Brooklyn love to call it the Botanical Gardens – I have no idea why) It’s free to enter on Tuesday AND Saturday from 10 AM to 12PM.   See other free places in NYC here.
    • Ice Skating at Wollman Rink (Prospect Park) from November to March – Skate rental is $6.50 plus $5 adults/$3 kids (to age 14) to skate. See schedule here
    • 7 Days a week play/flight simulation at Aviator Sports 3159 Flatbush Avenue (Floyd Bennett Field)
    • Tour the Rooftop Farm at Brooklyn Grange ($10) or take a cooking or yoga class there ( butcher paper diners there are fun with friends)
    • Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It cost $15 Million and took 13 years to built (1870-1883). If you do plan to do this, walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan in the morning, rather than the afternoon so that the sun is on your back and not glaring in your face. Don’t put a lock on the bridge because that’s for tourists who can’t afford to go to France do.
    • Eat Pizza – Brooklyn is know for having the best pizza and there are so many places to try! Juliana’s Pizza  (19 Old Fulton Street) was named the best in America so it’s worth a try, right? (We have not tried it yet).  We love Espresso Pizza and  Spumoni Gardens

     

    • Go to some of the great street festivals and feasts. The 18th Avenue Feast also known as the feast of St. Rosalia is the biggest and most popular feast in Bensonhurst.
