Since we were in the area and I have never been there, we stopped by Coney Island for lunch at Nathans!
After our nutritious and delicious lunch we took a walk on the boardwalk.
Even though it was a beautiful summer day (the day after Memorial Day) the place was empty for 1 PM.
They even have a palm tree on the beach (which is actually a misting palm tree)
Having seen photos of Coney Island my entire life it was cool to see it in person, with the tall apartment buildings in the background.
The pier appears to have been recently refurbished.
We continued down the boardwalk past the various rides, shops and restaurants
Ending up at the iconic Coney Island subway station.
