Outstanding POV, JP....perfect composition and awesome light! The Coney Island I remember from many years back (when I was in high school) was an amusement park; is it still there? Coney Island hot dogs were the best! #8451553

Jean-Pierre Ducondi March 12, 2010

Thank you all for your wonderful comments.
@Ann - Coney Island is still here with the rides - Some of them are landmarks now. The original Nathans still serves. My understanding is that there is a budget to renovate the area - I guess some the "old" buildings are aimed to disappear unfortunately.
