Coney Island

with 6 comments

It’s like a New York version of Skegness. Just with more people with scary prison tattoos.

And if you like the beach, there’s a handy US Army recruitment station so you can sign up for some fun in the sand of Iraq…

  1. Ah, Craig, you make me ashamed because I happen to live in the city all my life! One day I will have to act like a tourist and rediscover the magic of this place.

    By the way, have you seen any of those big tourist groups with brightly colored t-shirts walking around in the city lately? I thought it was funny.

    Take it easy for the next few days, it will be terribly hot! Too bad we can’t really call it the “Baked Apple” anymore because someone thought we ought to be known as “The World’s Second Home.” How about that?

  3. Craig – I feel really bad here, having suggested you go to Coney. Maybe what I find fascinating and faded charm you found too like Skegness. Don’t let it put you off our other recommendations though. And do go to Other Music!

  4. Lisa – I wouldn’t feel too bad, I was the same when I lived in London: didn’t go to any of the sights at all. The heat is, well, something I’ve never experienced before and my pale English skin just wasn’t ready for it!
    Dave – that’s me bending over to pick up my bait in the fishing photo, la’.
    Ian – worry not, I love Skegness! (honestly)

  5. It’s nice to see you’re still rockin’ the Nike high-tops. So did you catch any fish?
