sweet sunday • vintage coney island.

Coney Island is one of the weirdest places I've ever visited. The last few decades have not been kind to the once-awesome New York City beach town that is home to the famed Cyclone wooden roller coaster, Nathan's Hot Dogs, and the Mermaid Parade. The past few years have brought rumors ranging from a complete shut-down to a total rebirth. Only time will tell, I suppose. Today I'm sharing some photos of good ole Coney Island in her heyday.
