Amazing artwork. Haven’t been to Coney in years. Thanks for sharing these! 😊
Thanks. Coney Island has been upgraded since the 1970s and 1980s. Mostly due to Hurricane sandy in 2012. Lots of rebuilding and improvements. Hopefully this month my brother Stephen and I will visit the aquarium.
I’m aware of all the fixings and thankful they were able to do so. I’m a Brooklyn girl, though raised in NJ. I will have to visit again, very soon 😊
I was raised in the St. Albans and Jamaica Queens area. Growing up I spent lots of time at Rockaway Playland, beach and boardwalk. My family also went to Coney Island but naturally being natives of Southeast Queens spent much more time in the Rockaways.
I moved to Brooklyn six years ago so I enjoy spending time at Coney Island. Easy subway ride.
Wonderful! Have fun for me, too!! 😉
Years ago when I was in my 20s and more involved with church my friends and I went to Asbury Park for a Christian retreat. The beach there was very nice. Very clean. We had fun.
Asbury has its little issues, but overall, still the same 🙂
I believe the place is called Ocean Grove. I wonder if churches still use it as a retreat center?
I don’t know. The shore areas have changed over the years. There’s always a possibility 🙂
If you ever go to L.A. get someone to drive as you’ll be wowed by the murals. Their everywhere. Walls ,highway underpasses. And they tell stories. When the majority couldn’t read murals were done. In my teens they started bringing them back
Thanks for the tips.
Since I don’t drive someone would be in the driver’s seat while I would be a happy passenger.
Years ago I visited San Diego specifically Disneyland and other attractions. I love murals and street art. Fun.
These are too cool!!! I think the giant colored fish is my favorite!! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks. My favorite is the Mermaid. Every year in June there is a Coney Island Mermaid parade. Missed it last year and this year but hopefully next year I will catch it.
My daughter would love it!! Definitely will look into it!!
The Mermaid reminds me of my Aunt Thelma. If she were alive she would get a kick out of this. I retired on August 16th and spent two days of the Last week in August at Coney Island. I live in Brooklyn so it takes about an hour to get there but I arrive at 8 am in the morning and leave around noon.
Thanks. Aunt Thelma was one of my Dad’s three older sisters. She was the family comedian. Probably telling jokes in Heaven right now. Cracking up the family and the angels. Lol.
