Coney Island

September 10th, 2007

Today you get a very different post from what I usually do. I’ll get back to naked women in my next post, but for now try to enjoy these snapshots.

Dave Rudin and I went to Coney Island on Saturday. That was the main reason for this trip to NYC. Coney Island may never again be what it has been. In the paper today it says that Astroland closed for the season yesterday and may never re-open. There are developers working to make Coney Island nice and Disneyfied. So sad. So I went to see it…I’d never been there and wanted to see it before it was gone for good, at least as it has been.

This wasn’t about making photos. I just took my little Canon G6 camera and did snaps as we walked around. That’s what’s here.

This guy clearly wanted a photo of me. He didn’t speak to me. So I took his photo too, and didn’t speak to him. Don’t know why he picked on me…maybe it was the straw cowboy hat and Hawaiian shirt I was wearing. I only saw one other straw cowboy hat and no Hawaiian shirts there…these New Yorkers just don’t know how to dress for a day in the 90s in the sun.

This is where we had lunch. It’s right beside Nathan’s. There was a huge line at Nathan’s, but here we just walked up and ordered. It was good food and they had Corona too. I’ve had Nathan’s hotdogs and honestly don’t know what the big deal is.

Dave Rudin keeps saying the guy at the bottom of this window reminds him of me…I don’t see the resemblance.

There’s lots of great carnival art at Coney Island. I’m afraid it will be gone soon.

This is a pretty obvious photo. I’m sure it’s been done by thousands of photographers. Now I’ve done it too.
