Coney Island Bites
Even though my family is from Brooklyn all the way back to the early 1900's, I confess, I had never been to Coney Island before.
Back in the day, my father's family had a summer bungalow here, when people had summer bungalows here and the famous steeplechase was the main attraction.
The people that frequent Coney Island today have no interest in bungalows, trust me, and the steeplechase is long gone.
It was an interesting place, with the Cyclone, the Wonder Wheel and all the rides which would make me throw up, I am sure.
My husband insisted in standing in the LONG line for a famous Nathan's hot dog.
What's the big deal?
Still not sure.
The days of the Steeplechase amusement park were the glory days for Coney Island...it sadly was never the same after they closed down and were demolished, but there has been a recnt big push to revitalize the area with new rides and attractions. Thankfully it has become family friendly again!
I am troubled by there being no mention of a ride on the Cyclone. And so I will console myself by believing that, of course, you rode the Cyclone, but simply neglected to mention it.
I wrote about the cyclone I said I throw up on rides!!
And I didn't throw up either.
