4th of July is one Holiday that brings back so many memories; especially as a kid. Those memorable moments include going to the beach. Whether it was Coney Island, Brighton or Manhattan.
Thanks to Kenny for sending this link from the NY Times with a story on the Boardwalk at Coney Island turning to concrete. Good read and thanks Kenny for handing out the assist.
Last summer, the city began replacing the wooden boards on two short stretches of boardwalk with concrete strips as a pilot project for a more extensive overhaul of the structure, which extends for two and a half miles along the Brooklyn shoreline.
Speaking of the beach, do you recall that guy or guys who walked the beach in long pants and black shoes shouting, “HOT KNISHES, ICE COLD SODAS”?
Hey, what the heck, since we’re all over the beach theme, here’s another story from the NY Post on the bathrooms at Coney Island. Seems like in the ladies room they are being careful with their T.P. supply.
The city is so hard up for cash that it’s rationing toilet paper in women’s public restrooms — to the point where bathroom attendants are doling out a few measly squares per patron — along the world-famous Coney Island boardwalk.
The Post witnessed stone-faced Parks Department employees leave toilet-paper dispensers empty last week and instead force astonished female beachgoers to form “ration lines” in the bathrooms.
Hope everyone has a great day.
