It was a brisk and lovely weekend at the Coney Island Boardwalk. Breezy and chilly in spots, lovely in the sunlight. Part wood, part cobblestones, part concrete, the Brooklyn's own Boardwalk Empire continues its march forward, as, happily, Ruby's Bar and Grill and Paul's Daughter remain part of the Coney Island landscape for another year.
It was a busy, post-beach season Sunday as we walked the streets, the Boardwalk and the Pier. We saw a film being shot on a side street; strolling families, couples, and dogs taking in the sun; the Original Kings of Coney Island Boardwalk Music doing there thing; many rides and venues were entertaining families, including Luna Park; Denos; the Wonder Wheel; and of course Nathan's; a homeless-looking guy entertaining the crowd to disco music a little further down; jet skiers racing along the shore; and finally, a bride and groom walking along the shoreline as the wedding photographer took photos; the bride's lovely gown swirled about by the waves as they gently lapped up on the beach.
Just another ordinary day in an extraordinary place, Coney Island, NY, USA
