Coney Island - May 2008





Spent the day down at the New York Aquarium at Coney Island. Thought you'd like to see some photos of the Ferris Wheel, the Cyclone, Nathan's, and some graffiti. Stay tuned for more...

Yeah!! my home town!!

Isn't the aquarium wonderful. Have you gone to the baseball stadium? It's like a small town in the middle of NY.

great photos.

Never been there and not sure if I will ever get there either. I spent the day fishing with the family, and now Allen is grilling some chicken to go with a nice salad.

Thanks for the photos. Never made it to Coney Island on my visits to New York because none of my friends I was visiting would go there! So it's nice to get an idea of how it looks from you... :)

Thank you Maryt, for the pictures, the muriel is new for this year? I like going to Coney Island a lot. We didn't have time this time for going there.
We did eat at the 'Burger Joint' eating place. The food was not real good, Nathan's hot dogs aren't either for my money!

I did have a hot dog sausage from a vendor wagon, also a knish. Both were excellent.

I love these shots, Mary! I was there last spring with my husband's cousin, and how I wanted to pass through those gates and actually be in that place. Out and about there is some great graffiti in that area. Many murals and memorials.

Silly as this sounds, I didn't realize Coney Island was still open! I guess I don't get our much!

WOW! I heard so much about this place! I hope someday I can visit;-) And I love that last shot of the sayings! Way cool! Happy Weekend;)

Hi Mary!
I have never been to Coney Island! I want to go there for so many years. Maybe I will get there one of these summers. :-) I would love that. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos with us all.
Hugs,
Kimmie

Oooh - I could go for one of those Hot Dogs right now -- I saw them on the Food Network the other night!
And I love aquariums! I need to come visit and go to that one with you!

That made me hungry for a hot dog!
