Coney Island - Keyspan Park - NY Aquarium - 7/28/07

Hey Everybody - Gwyneth and I went to Coney Island via Metro North and NYC Subway (D train) on Saturday. We checked out the NY Aquarium, Astroland, Nathan's, and to top it off we went to a Coney Island Cyclones game at Keyspan Park.


After our two hour - dual transportation ride


Nathan's......the lines to get a dog are huge...whatever


we didn't ride it....but I bought a shirt that said i did....






This is the boardwalk entrance....

Ran into my sister's friends Kim Ryan & Josephine....its a small world....

Parachute Jump

Front entrance....


The view from our $14 seats....sweet




Eatin'...


Drinkin'...


The top of the scoreboard....


Heading home....


A turn of the century quote on Coney Island.....


James Gibbions Huneker - from 1915....
"For when you are at Coney Island you cast aside your hampering reason and become a plain lunatic"
