explore: coney island

the rides are cutely candy-striped, but they take the legs from under you

Well, less of an ‘explore’ than some pictures from the shiny new (but retro-styled) Luna Park and the Cyclones game at crowded, tacky and fabulous Coney Island. Even as the heat muscles its way more and more aggressively into everyone’s daily life, looking at these pictures makes me love summer in New York.

luna park, in its heaving glory
the tickler. it did not 'tickle', exactly, says my bruised derrière
clanking up the tickler... (I want some mugs like these ride cars)
the field at dusk
