Coney Island Opening Day

An amusement ride on Coney Island opening day 2017

Yesterday I took a trip to Coney Island.  It had been about a year since my last visit, and I assumed the amusement parks would all be closed.  I was wrong.  Yesterday was, in fact, opening day at Coney Island.  The weather was beautiful, and the crowds were plentiful.  It was as if all of […]
