An afternoon at Coney Island

My roomate and I decided to head on down to the Coney Island (a section of Brooklyn on the Atlantic Ocean). We stood in line at McDonald's on the boardwalk on Coney Island (near Stillwell & Surf Avenues) to receive two Cokes with no ice cubes. In fact the sodas were not even refrigerated at all from the taste of them. These were perhaps the worst fountain sodas we have ever had! Well on with our afternoon adventures at Coney Island!

a look at Coney Island's busy beach from the pier near Stillwell & Surf Avenues.

A look outside the other side of the Pier. This section of beach is not looked after by lifeguards this weekend. Roomer has it there is a shortage of city lifeguards again this summer.

From the end of the Pier looking back at Coney Island.

A look towards the east side of the pier and the Coney Island amusement park, Astroland.

A look at the pier itself. In the background is the Parachute Jump (red tower) and Keyspan Park (light standards), home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
