Photo by myself on the boardwalk at Coney Island, Brooklyn.
Though the beach season hasn't yet started, some vendors were already serving customers this weekend. Hot dogs tend to be the crowd favorite.
On Sunday, Mark and I took our dog Rupert for his first walk on the beach. The walk was short-lived; unfortunately, the beach was littered with broken glass.
Coney Island is located at the tip of Brooklyn, about 20 minutes away by car. You can also take the subway. Lots of other people had had the same idea, since the weather was mild.
Coney Island is known for its boardwalk, an amusement park with a wooden roller coaster and an overall feeling of decay. Perhaps at one time the rides and storefronts were new, but the area always seems a bit run down. The neighborhood around the park is a bit depressing.
