07-17 Coney Island“Coney Island, that marvelous city of lath and burlap, should always be approached by sea, as then, and then only, can the beauty of this ephemeral Venice be appreciated. Landward, the trains run through squalid neighborhoods, and past the back of everything. Its best foot is put forward to the sea.” — Scientific American
