With temperatures in the high 50's I decided to take the train out to Coney Island. I wasn't the only one with this idea. There were a few people on the beach; this older woman was trying to catch some rays. (perhaps a long time native of the garbage strewn sea shore and tackyness of Coney Island) There was a depressing aura about the entire place; this past summer was the last summer that the roller coaster and parachute drop rides would operate. It will be interesting to see what happens to the Coney Island many New Yorkers have enjoyed for so long.
