While looking at the AMNY this morning, Rick noticed a picture showing that Irene was expected to plow through Brooklyn/Queens on Sunday morning. Immediately it dawned on him, that Coney Island was right in the path of destruction. Now most inconsiderate people might say “Meh.” However, one of the top items on the NYC Bucket List Rick crafted last week as suggested by KS was to ride the Cyclone. In his head, Rick had always put it off thinking that it would be a great place to take a girl on a date. Being that he can’t seem to make relationships last into the summer, his Coney Island trip has remained on the back burner. At 3:32 PM, Rick emailed the CoG to see if anyone wanted to take this collect call from adventure. Ostrowe accepted.
We made it to Coney Island at 8:45. By 8:51 we had bought our tickets. And by 8:53 we were on the coaster climbing up the first hill.
I hope both Coney Island staples are still standing come Monday
