Half ferris wheel, Half Mini Coaster
I went to Coney Island earlier today with a bunch of MeFi people. Although initially underwhelmed, it turned into a fun afternoon as we went on the Wonder Wheel, rode the bumper cars, and dipped our feet in the water as we walked along the beach. Of course, what visit to Coney Island would be complete without a trip to Nathan's as well.
After we had our fill of the parks, we moseyed down the boardwalk and made our way to Tatiana's, a Russian restaurant right on the boardwalk, where we had a delicious meal. Of course, I wasn't quite sure what I was ordering, but that was just incidental - the meaty salad was delicious, and I hope I can remember what it was for the next time I find myself in Russia, unsure of what to eat.
This was my first trip to Coney Island, and hopefully it won't be my last, but the impending development may lead to the tearing down of some parts of this iconic NYC location. Although it doesn't seem like much when you walk from subway towards the park entrances, there is a surprisingly fun crowd bathed in a mood of enchantment that envelops you as you walk through the gates.
For those inclined, some pictures of the day can be found here on Flickr.
