Re-visited New York for a week. This time I had of course better weather than back in 2007 over christmas and New Years. I stayed with my lovely family friends up in Briar Cliff Manor. Enjoyed the company in their beautiful home.

While crossing the street, this lady came along with her cute dog. The police woman could not hold herself any longer. She started to cuddle it.

On my way to CONEY ISLAND

USA NYC 2013 32

Coney Island is home to the Fairs with Cyclone Roller Coaster, Denos Wonder Wheel, well more than 50 rides along the boardwalk. Try also one of the best
hot dogs offered by Nathan’s. They are in the progress of building Nathan’s close by the Coney Island Station. The attractions are closed during the week.
I went on a friday and had the chance to take some pictures without the crowds.

Walking the other way back to the Coney Island Station did not feel so safe nor attractive. I guess tourists should stick to the fair at the boardwalk.
