Filling meals and snacks for Disneyland trip

I'm making my annual solitary pilgrimage to Disneyland/California Adventure for 3 days in August. It's summer, and their diamond celebration is going on, so I anticipate mad crowds.

B&B/Hotel w/a Nice OUTDOOR Pool Near NYC?

We've got a nine-month-old who's never really been in a pool. We'd like to plan a short two or three day vacation built around playing with him in an *outdoor* pool somewhere that's within a three hour drive of NYC. Please recommend a hotel or bed and breakfast that's got a nice, baby-friendly pool. Before the baby, we stayed at resorts in Arizona and California that'd be perfect for this sort of thing, but we can't seem to find anything similar on the east coast. Thanks!

Why is there a fringe curtain at the Jefferson Park CTA stop?

My initial ideas were that it provides shade or shielding, but I don't see any monitors or equipment that it shades, and it only covers a small part of the stop. I haven't noticed fringe at other stops. here is a picture.

Best beaches in or within a day of Seattle?

We're new-ish to the Seattle area and we'd like to find the best beaches for us and our 14-month-old to hang out and build sand castles and stuff at in or around the Seattle area.

NYC Trip on a budget

I'm heading to NYC for a short, 5-6 day trip starting tomorrow! I did a bit of planning myself, but I'll be on kind of a tight budget (I'm staying with a family member in Queens). Any fun things I should check out while I'm there from July 17 - 22? I love: music, food, festivals (of any kind) and especially anything comedy-related. Thanks!
