Taking Coney Island Up A Notch

Oh, how love can grow deeper by the day!  

I love Coney Island and I love it’s Sideshows By The Seashore.  One of the many things that make NYC one of the greatest places on earth.  But how great is it that they bring the Right-Here-Right-Now-Real-World to us.  Horrors With A Sense Of Humor.  Read the NY Times article here (Thanks Abbey!).
