We’ll be flying into JFK right soon, and I noticed Coney Island was pretty close by. I’ve never been, but I saw it in a movie with Tom Hanks. I hear it’s a boardwalky place with rides and such, like Santa Cruz, CA, a place we hit for a few hours in 2010 before going to San Fransisco.
My kids had a fun time last time on the rides and are asking to go back this year. It’s seen some redevelopment in the last few years and is worth a stop for the rides I’d say. Boardwalk is nothing great, beach even less so. Fun to see the broad spectrum of the recent immigrant population out with the kids. The Aquarium is right nearby, that’s worth a stop. Most would say get a frank at Nathan’s but I always stop in at Randazzo’s Clam Bar in nearby Sheepshead bay for pasta.
So it’s something to do, but not something you must do? Stave off the jet lag for a while?[/quote]
That sums it up pretty well. Not something that can’t be missed by any means, but not a bad afternoon for the kids. Still, a pretty good amount of energy needed, what time your flight get in?[/quote]
Late night, but the jet lag will have everyone up by dawn. Too bad there’s not a Mets game that day. Stadium is close to the hotel.

Try and get me some of that “stuff filet.” :ohreally:
I read this thinking “fuckin’” before every noun. Am I now a Brooklynite?
