When we used to live in the city back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, we lived a block away from Grace’s Marketplace on 71st and 3rd on the Upper East Side. A few years after we made our way back to Long Island we noticed that a new marketplace was being built in Greenvale. When we saw the Grace’s signs go up, we knew that Long Island was in for a wonderful treat.
We’re all about the family friendly activities on Long Island and in this time of year, we can’t think of anything better than apple picking on any of Long Island’s local farms. We took a trip to Lewin Farm in Wading River this past weekend to wander the fields collecting our bounties from the rows and rows of apple trees lining the farm.
