Coney Island beach re-opens for Memorial Day weekend…
With lovely hot weather, I grabbed my gear and hopped on the metro down to Coney Island beach. The first day the beach reopened for the season.
I was surprised to see the rusty old Cyclone still running: I had riden it once, back when I was 16yrs old (I was 32yrs old when I created these photographic images) and the Cyclone’s still going!)
Magee Hickey was also there documenting the beach scene (Reporter for WPIX and Time Warner Cable News- NY1 in New York City): http://pix11.com/2014/05/26/new-yorkers-enjoy-coney-island-attractions-for-memorial-day/#axzz334IInNPi
As you can see, the cops were out, helping lost children, keeping an eye on the adults and enjoying the sunshine too…
I queued at Nathans for what felt like an eternity in the hot burning sun (trying to use the fellow hungry patrons for as many inches of shade as I could, without them noticing: being of very pale skin, when I burn it’s bad!). After possibly the highest calorie lunch I’ve probably ever had, I dipped into the Beach Shop to ‘buy the t-shirt’ with ‘Brooklyn’ on it (as I had been renting in Brooklyn the whole month of May). Then toddled off back to Fort Greene as the sun began to set.
