Why I love Coney Island

They can take away the amusements, boardwalk businesses, corn dogs and Freaks, but the spirit of Coney will always shine in its people.

YES!  This place embodies the spirit of Whitman more than anywhere else I can think of in the city these days.  Just beautiful.  I love the way that here you can still be one with such a great mixture of people - old, young, large, small, every ethnicity, every tight, skimpy, or crazy costume.  People letting it all hang out, & a spirit of kindness & love.  Will be there later today or tomorrow, & plenty of summer weekdays.  Great photos!

 You are so right about feeling Whitman!  I agree, this is the one place where I feel most at one with the city and everyone in it.  People here are celebrating being themselves - no pretensions, guards or guises.  Enjoy the day!
