Went to Coney Island this afternoon for my pre-summer hot dogs. I like Nathan's dogs, but only at Nathan's. I do not think they travel well, they must be eaten within one block of the Nathan's mothership. I am sure the sights of Surf Avenue and the smell of the sand and ocean all contribute to their unique taste. I am not a fan of grilled dogs, save for the ones here and at ballgames, as I am very partial to DWDs (dirty water dogs) from the street vendors.

The newest addition to Coney Island is the new ballpark (on the left) for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Mets single A farm team. It is across the street (if a street still existed) from the old Steeplechase Park whose Parachute Jump frame is still there. I can remember going to Steeplechase Park on trips from my grammar school and not accepting the dare to go on the Parachute jump, my loss.

Of cause on Coney Island you can walk for a mile and go from the complete honky tonk atmosphere of hot dogs, boardwalk barkers, corn on the cob and cotton candy, with all their smells
