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.
