For YEARS I’ve wanted to go to Coney Island in Brooklyn NY. It’s iconic, it’s an amusement park/fair, I had heard the lore and needed to experience it myself.
But efforts were always foiled. Rain, alien invasion, over-scheduling. So this trip to NYC to visit beloved elementary school friend Miriam had only three agenda items (in addition to spending as much time with her as possible), and Coney Island had a full day allocated.
It was Awesome!
So much color, so many (easy) games to win scratchy stuffed animals, so many childhood memories, even though mine didn’t happen here the elements were the same.
I was giddy and gleeful, hugging Miriam frequently to express my delight.
Have you been to Coney Island? What’s your favorite part?
Are there other parks that hold your heart?
