It may be the first day of Fall, but thanks to Stephen perpetually pushing back these posts, we'll still be talking Summer on Whale & Wishbone at least three more times in the near future.
Next up, Coney Island, and honestly, it's not a true New York City summer until you go. Stomachs full from our Smorgasburg adventure, Stephen and I were ready to do some serious roller coaster riding -- in hindsight it seems so dumb to go from eating our weight at a food fair to riding upside down at an amusement park, but we were blinded by excitement and delirious form the heat.
This day was a dream for my inner photographer: unbelievably bright with clouds that looked photoshopped. Coney Island feels a little like stepping back in time to old New York. Icons like Nathan's and the Wonder Wheel all feel like they've been there forever.
I mean look at these clouds. LOOK AT THEM.
Coney Art Walls are currently on display outside Luna Park. It's an outdoor museum for street art, featuring immense art walls from 24 different artists. Stephen and I had a blast admiring and taking pics. Above is a wall by Stephen Powers, and below is by The London Police.
