During a recent visit to New York City, I thought I'd checkout some of my old stomping grounds. One of my favorite places was the Boardwalk at Coney Island.... Hurricane Sandy caused some damage to the old place, but the city and private patrons restored it and made it even better. Fortunately, we happen to be in town during their grand re-opening of this famous landmark.....
My niece had heard stories, but never been to Coney Island, so this was a perfect time to introduce her to Coney Island, and re-acquaint myself with an old friend. The boardwalk had a few new eateries, stores, vendors, and family friendly attractions but retained the old favor of anticipation and excitement.
There was dancing, acrobatics, rides, the beach, and of course a Nathan's hotdog..... Everyone had a common goal, to have fun and ensure that others had a great time as well.
We all had a wonderful time and I hope to return again soon.

Take a trip with me to the Land Of The Rising Sun…..
Host to the Olympic Games in 1964 (summer) and 1972, 1998 (winter).
Japan is a place where ancient culture and modern technology live side by side in perfect unity. The streets are clean (no litter) and crime is very low. No matter where you go, you are greeted by friendly people, unbelievable creativity, and amazing cuisine.
