A wooden carousel in Seaside Heights, NJ that survived both fires and earthquakes is now on the chopping block. Built in 1910, it’s in the same beach town made recently famous by the MTV TV show, Jersey Shore. The carousel’s estimated value is $3 million, but the auction house may also sell it piece by piece. Perfect timing for anyone that’s ever wanted a carved wooden horse to ride in their living room.

Take the trip to Gowanus for a scoop of Ample Hills‘ “the munchies” made up of pretzel infused ice cream mixed with potato chips, mini M&Ms, and Ritz crackers. So for every one of us with a little fat girl screaming to get out, this is the ice cream flavor of your wet dreams.

Channel Southern France At Claudette

This Greenwich Village newbie opened up quietly this summer while we’ve all been too busy at the beach to notice. Airy and white, Claudette’s menu is heavy on Middle Eastern recipes and traditional Provençal seafood for a well-rounded dinner.
