We went to Coney Island this morning, and I'm so glad we did. It's a place I've been somewhat interested in for a while, just never took the time to check in to it, and I certainly don't live close to it. So, while spending a few days in NYC, and staying in Brooklyn (Coney Island is in Brooklyn), Sarah and I didn't really think we should pass up the opportunity.
Most of Coney Island's attractions have been shut down since late-2007 (USA Today article here).
On our way out to Coney Island this morning, I didn't really know what to expect, but I did expect a ghost town. And that is certainly what we got.
I just hope the ghosts haven't taken over for good.
