Weekend tourist

Every weekend there's a new corner of New York to explore, this Saturday I made it out to the old beach land of Coney Island.  I was surprised at how much bigger it was than I originally thought it to be and how it felt like walking onto a scene from the early 1900's.  Even though there are modern reminders everywhere, the place still airs an old dreamlike magic of fun with signs from the past, sweet smelling confections, and brightly colored amusement parks lining the boardwalk.  This photo was my favorite from the day and seemed to capture all the previous stated sentiments; people having come to leave their cares behind and step into a new wonderland.
