Day 199: Coney Island = Lame

[ New York/ Texas Trip ]: Day 8 So I was VERY excited to have finally really Coney Island. I had a Nathan's hotdog, although they didnt' taste better or worse than the ones at the Avenue at Cal Poly. Then I proceeded to walk to the boardwalk with so much excitement. When I finally got there, it was dirty, deserted and boring. I walked from end to end in under 20 minutes. Realizing I shouldn't leave (because it had taken me so long to get there and so long to travel back), I took some pictures of random things. I got some shrimp and sat at the pier for an hour or so... writing and drawing. Also, Coney Island not as cool as Santa Cruz. Not even close. poop.

Day 198: Journey to Coney Island

[ New York/Texas Trip ]: Day 8 These pictures are taken with a combination of my point-and-shoot and my Canon 30D.  One day I ventured to Coney Island from Brooklyn.  It really was an epic journey.  I went by myself and admired the interesting places I passed on the train.  I was soooo amped up about going to Coney Island... thinking it'd be like Uptown Girls.  My anticipation was rising with each stop.
