Super trashy ghetto, down in Coney Island. I went for the first time last summer and it was pretty damn awful. Greasy food, lowest-of-the-low people, pathetic attractions. All rusty and old-looking.

Like a state fair, but with urban ghetto people instead of rural rednecks.

Riding the Cyclone was great, and so is the new subway station- shiny and clean. The only shiny-and-clean thing you'll find at Coney!

There are talks of a development plan from a rich Brooklyn-native constructor that would put hotels and good attractions in Coney, turning it into a first-class amusement park.

I doubt it'll hapen.

Not too long ago, I got a tour of the NY Aquarium, in conjunction with a trade association I belong to. After, we had dinner at a very nice Italian restaurant with a select group of customers.

Let me just say...I pity the poor mugger who tries to ply his trade on these folks.

Yes I will 2nd that, I would even call it a 3rd word ghetto.
I walked from the train station and back last July and could not hear one person speaking English. Nobody bothered me but I felt like I was between a Cemetery or the New York State Pavilion Worlds Fair runes of Corona Park.

Same crap with Rye Playland.
I remember these places as a kid in the 60's before Kennedy’s signed that death sentence called "the immigration act of 1965"
Oh how my grandfather (father side) who was a chef at the Warldof at the time would get so rieled up mad and curse UNITED STATES BOOTDELLO coming home from work 2 AM with the bongo drums and salsa music blasting out windows!
We lived on Dekalb Avenue between Myrtle and Evergreen at the time, it was the only house with a tree.
in 1995 It was still there
