Coney Island has always been a touchstone for me, especially when I was living in Brooklyn. I use to ride my bike there from my neighborhood several times a year to take in the atmosphere, buy cheap clothes at the Russian stores in Brighton Beach, and eat a really good knish. I took my son there recently to ride the Cyclone rollercoaster. Here is what the boardwalk looked like on that day.
