Our final days in NYC

For our last few days in our home of NYC, we decided to do a few touristy things that we had yet to do. Of course, we didn't have enough time to do them all...but we tried :)

Here we are, ready for an evening cruise around Manhattan!

Since nothing declares the independence of our country better than eating, Jason & I could not resist heading out to Coney Island to watch the Nathan's Famous international hot dog eating contest. ESPN was even there to broadcast the "sporting" event. Happy 4th of July!

Joey Chestnut & Kobayashi tied at 59 dogs eaten in 10 minutes and the contest went into eating overtime!! It was quite the thrill - the one to eat five hot dogs the fastest would be the champion of 2008! Joey out-ate Kobayashi by 7 seconds and retained his title!!!
