Coney Island

When I was in New York Liz and I went down to Coney Island the week after passover. It was lovely weather and chock full of Hasidim. I love Coney Island beyond reason and think its really sad that this may be the last year before the corporations move in and ruin it.

Anway here is our visit in slideshow form …

… and here are some of the better pictures.

oh and here is the trailer to my favourite film featuring Coney Island … The Warriors gotta love this film!

    great stuff – I got my memories from a videoclip about the place, I don’t know who sing the song, but it was something about “god is great, god is god” 😀

    I love every picture on this post. I actually saw The Warriors for the first time this past week, and of course the first thing I saw was the “Wonder Wheel.”

    thanks guys.

    The Warriors rocks – I love all the slightly camp gangs and the sort of vaguely knights of old language they use sometimes. I was in Coney again last weekend actually so maybe I will ad some more pictures to this post when I finally get round to scanning in al my new pictures.
