Coney Island Boardwalk
Part of the amusement park as seen from the boardwalk
The boardwalk at W10th street
A section of old boarded up building, still colorful and attractive in a way.
"Gory & Pauls" which should be "Gregory, I think. . .hope
A banner for the "Giantess" attraction where it appears that she might just be taller than a Giraffe. . .in her heels anyway ;) I had to place these up high in the frame to avoid the sun which was in front of me.
The snake girl and "She's Alive" on the right. The woman is holding her own head. . .
Here is the "Wonder Wheel" on a slow Thursday. There were actually people riding and the wheel is much larger than appears in this photo.
Shoot the live human with paintballs in an empty lot. There is an announcer that trash talks people here as they walk by trying to entice you to let off your steam by shooting this poor chap with paint balls.
Cha cha's wild women and wise guys bar.
Here is a place that sells "fresh smooties" lol
We saw the Macho man and his ladies. . .
We saw the girl on the sign offering hamburgers and Beer. . .The Brooklyn Lager that she is offering up is one of the best beers around, anywhere.
And then we saw too much. . .;)
Coney Island amusement park and boardwalk is very busy and full of excitement on the weekends. It is so run down though, but to many, that is part of its appeal.
We were visiting the New York Aquarium which is right next to the park and so after the aquarium we decided to stroll around the boardwalk. Kyle is not comfortable with being around amusement parks and loud sounds, excitement, etc and so for his sake we moved on quickly. He does love the aquarium, as do I.
