During a recent visit to New York City, I thought I'd checkout some of my old stomping grounds. One of my favorite places was the Boardwalk at Coney Island.... Hurricane Sandy caused some damage to the old place, but the city and private patrons restored it and made it even better. Fortunately, we happen to be in town during their grand re-opening of this famous landmark.....
My niece had heard stories, but never been to Coney Island, so this was a perfect time to introduce her to Coney Island, and re-acquaint myself with an old friend. The boardwalk had a few new eateries, stores, vendors, and family friendly attractions but retained the old favor of anticipation and excitement.
There was dancing, acrobatics, rides, the beach, and of course a Nathan's hotdog..... Everyone had a common goal, to have fun and ensure that others had a great time as well.
We all had a wonderful time and I hope to return again soon.
