New York City 2015!

This trip's highlights include; Polish food, German food, Mermaid Parade. Kittens, free booze and e-cigs, documentaries, Nathan's hot dogs, Coney Island beers! and the Moth!, 
The best moment was when I got off the Wonder Wheel on Coney Island and there is a picture of Carl Sagan on the monitor near the ride. I asked quite loudly, "Why is Carl Sagan there?" and the operator said, "because I wanted to find one fucking smart person here. You're the only one that got it!" Then he gave me a high five. It was weird and awesome.
