I am in love with Coney Island. Just about a 1-hour subway ride from Times Square, and you are transported into a different world.
A Magical, Seaside, Historical Playground.
It’s changing – some say for the worse – but so far I’m still very much in love.
Sure, “Shoot The Freak” is no longer there, but I never Shot The Freak, so I don’t miss that.
I love the pier. It has not changed.
I love standing on the pier and looking out at the beach and the surf. No change. And, just smell that air!
I love looking at the rides – like The Wonder Wheel.
And The Cyclone.
I love the history on the walls at Ruby’s.
All of this, for the cost of a couple of subway rides? What’s NOT to Love??
(Disclaimer – of course, to ride the rides or eat the food you must shell out some do-re-mi.)
This Love Affair of mine will go on and on. And this topic will be continued… more pictures to come.
In the mean time – thanks to eBay – here are some vintage postcards of My Love.
