Coney Island

These photos capture a day at Coney Island in Spring 2023. The weather was overcast.

My friend and I were pondering which rides to try. Given our hangover, we settled on the Wonder Wheel, thinking it would be a wiser choice. Surprisingly, the ride turned out to be far shakier and scarier than expected.

At the end of the day, our only desire was to return to the city. Yet the experience was made more gratifying by the presence of a solid friend.
