"Coney Island" Coney Island by kazander
Coney Island Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 60 photos
One rainy day in August Lou and I decided to venture into Brooklyn to go to the New York Aqaurium. When we parked we noticed Coney Island was right next door, so after a day of sea creatures, we headed over to the boardwalk. Neither of us had ever been to Coney Island before. We most likely will never go again, unless we decide to attend the Mermaid Parade....
Although it was interesting to be someplace that we had always heard about, yet never visited despite the close proximity to home, we were disappointed. It was dirty, very dirty. The rides are so old they look like they could collapse at any given moment. Even the famed Cyclone roller coaster looked bad. I suppose this is part of it's charm, but to me the Jersey Shore has the same attractions: a boardwalk, rides, the beach all of which are better maintained.
- Pros:Good if you like "vintage" rides
- Cons:rundown, dirty and they have really bad lemonade...
- In a nutshell:get me outta here and take me to the Jersey Shore!
