A question many a New Yorker has pondered. And this weekend, we discovered the answer…or at least one of the answers. Paint ball, mothafucka!
Located a hop, skip and a jump past the Verrazano Bridge, Cousins Paintball offers field after field of paintball bliss. 10 or more people gets you a private field, and they will gear you with helmet, gun and paintballs, and if you’re a gal, a chest pad. $7 more gets you a crappy thin jumpsuit, so we’d recommend just bringing clothing that you don’t care about…and a change of clothes, cause you will be getting messy. We played on about 3 different fields, and one was filled with swampy mud puddles. Also make sure the clothing covers you up, cause paintballs hurt!! One of us, who shall remain nameless (Tracy) is covered in bruises. But the paint was well worth it.
Paintball. Goddamned fun.
