For a well known New York landmark, Coney Island is surprisingly gritty as a tourist spot. It's not your generic amusement park though, so I suppose that same grittiness gives it a unique character that cannot be experienced elsewhere. Nevertheless, Luna Park was still fun; I did all the generic touristy things like going on the Cyclone (which was scary since it's so old and rickety), the Wonder Wheel and of course, getting hot dogs at Nathan's.
I finally saw the Prada + Elsa Schiaparelli exhibit and went to Eataly today, but more on that later. Toodles.
