Coney Island Fun Facts Pictorial.
Coney Island is a place that every American is familiar with one way or another – it’s been featured in books, movies & TV shows. We had always wondered about Coney Island so on our recent trip to New York City we decided to swing by. Neither one of us had been there before and it’s such an iconic part of American history and since we were so close by we just couldn’t resist the urge. Sadly, the grand opening of the amusement park was the next day so it was very quiet. It also started raining while we were there which added to the lonely honky tonk atmosphere.
We both enjoyed it there (and Randy even got a hot dog at the infamous Nathan’s!) and one thing I really liked was that right on the boardwalk, behind the New York Aquarium (which is the oldest aquarium in the country), there is a huge mural painted with underwater themes. It’s a beautiful mural and I loved that throughout it, the artist interspersed facts about the history of Coney Island and New York. The colors were so brilliant I decided to shoot an impromptu Iphone photo essay of the mural.
I hope you enjoy this pictorial of historical travel fun facts in bold, beautiful hues.
