Coney Island

I've had a little obsession with Coney Island every since I moved to NYC.  I understand now why photographers have been drawn to it over the years - Weegee's images & films being some of my favorite.  (Be sure not to miss his current exhibition at the ICP!)  I think the winter is my favorite time to visit Coney Island, but I sure had a lot of fun eating Nathan's hot dogs, drinking ice cold beer & riding the Wonder Wheel with my family on Memorial Day.

Me: "Can I take your photo because you two are in love?!"
She: "Ohhhh Mami!!"
Me: "God, I LOVE New York!"
