Hey my Brooklyn friends,
Coney Island was supposed to open today for the 2011 season but it was rained out. I’m sure everything will get moving as soon as this weather clears up. Looking to see you at Luna Park and on The Cyclone Roller Coaster.
Coney Island was the original hot spot to go to for fun and games back in the day. The home of Nathan’s foot long hot dog and french fries made with fresh potatoes, not frozen. (The hot dog bun was never as long as the hot dog though.) Cotton candy, candy apples, popcorn, sausage and peppers. Back then there were 3 roller coasters, the Cyclone, the Thunderbolt and I think the other one was the Tornado. There was also the world famous Steeplechase, the Parachute Tower and the Wonder Wheel ferris wheel. The Parachute Tower and Steeplechase have long since closed but Coney Island is still a nice outing for the family.
And they have cleaned up the beach. Got to check it out. So glad someone had sense enough to know that this is a landmark and should not be scraped for more unaffordable housing. In this economy, let’s have as much fun as possible.
The fun is back in Coney Island!!!! See you on the Wonder Wheel.
