Springtime Bustle on the Boardwalk

Today the boardwalk was bursting with action!!  The weather was beautiful.  The first breath of summer air was breathed into Coney Island.  The boardwalk was packed with walkers, joggers, bikers, photographers, babies and the usual parade of strange and unusual characters!!  The energy in Coney Island was incredible.  Newness and hope radiated into the fresh springtime air!!

The empty cars of the Cyclone Roller Coaster were zipping around the tracks.  The Cyclone Coaster technicians were working on speeding it up so that it is EVEN FASTER this year!!

Construction on the new amusement park in Coney Island, Luna park, began!! The bustle of a different group of contractors was repairing the boardwalk!

And Lola Star was hard at work scrubbing her filthy pink walls.  Since the space was abandoned for almost a year, it was filthy!! But even the chore of scrubbing dusty tin walls seemed blissful!  I am just so happy to be back in my shop again!!

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of pink paint and a fresh breath of spring air to revive your soul!  Get ready for the most incredible summer Coney Island has experienced in decades!!!
