This will be the last of my America posts. I've been a bit lazy by just posting up my holiday pics, sorry! I have been super busy, nothing blogworthy, but imma pull my socks up around here. It feels as though summer is over so back to school. These cloudy Coney Island pictures match the gloomy end-of-summer weather outside, today.
We decided to go to Coney one evening as we thought The Cyclones, Coney Island's baseball team, were going to be playing. Apparently their baseball ground is really quaint and old-fashioned. Well, it looked nice from the outside but as soon as we approached we realised we'd messed up. The floodlights were off and they were playing away that night.
So we strolled down the boardwalk instead. I was very, VERY tempted to get a Nathan's hotdog but I'm sticking to no-meat.
I wished this rollerskating rink was open. It was so old-timey and crumbly looking.
The Cyclone looked well shonky. It's a Coney institution, where every young Brooklyn couple has been for a date since 1927. It looked well sinister to me, though.
And Astroland, the theme park. Looking moody.
