Coney Island has long been one of my favorite places in New York. I regret that I didn’t start blogging earlier, because I have so many happy memories on this unique little beach that I’d love to share. But this weekend, I got to make some new ones. Finally, finally, after years of a conflicting schedule, I was in town for the Coney Island Mermaid Parade!
This celebration of summer and skin was dreamed up thirty years ago by some of the artists and quirky characters that call Coney home. I have hundreds of photos to share about this unique holiday, so look for a full post coming up this month. For now, I’ll just say that I couldn’t dream up a better way to spend a sunny Saturday than to bum rush the beach with several thousand fellow New Yorkers, dressed as one of my favorite sea creatures.
Which photo is your favorite this week?
