#587. Happy Labor Day 2015
It's the Labor Day long weekend, marking the end of the summer season although the equinox is not for another few weeks. The weather was beautiful (sunny and hot), so yesterday we caught the train up to Rye, a coastal suburb on Long Island Sound in the commuter belt. About 50 minutes north in Westchester County, Rye has quite a nice public beach ($4 entry).
Rye is also the home of Playland, a Luna Park-style amusement park that opened in 1927 and was placed on the National Historic Register in 1987. Xavi said it was "the funnest day in the whole world". It closes for the season today. It's a pity we only just discovered it.
