It's the last stop. The waking place if you fall asleep on the F train. A boardwalk of honky-tonk and kitch, Coney Island has been an iconic destination in New York City for the past century, but as discussed recently in The New York Times, the landscape is about to change.
Yesterday was the final day for 8 of the current 11 merchants to vacate the premises as mandated by the boardwalk's new landlord, so Brian and I decided to get away from work and our lives a little early and head down to the boardwalk for one last glimpse.
A nerdy, gear-head note: Brian recently purchased an adapter for his Canon EOS 5D, which allows him to use his Hasselblad Zeiss lenses on the digital body, so the above is just a little taste of more photographic masterpieces to come.
