I've never been to Coney Island, but I've heard about it many times. It's been the subject of some amazing songs and makes me think of happiness, freedom and romance. In my mind, it's a great-big carnival where everybody wins cupie dolls for the one they love and then eats a hot dog.
Well, I've just found out that I'll never have the opportunity to experience that. The amusement park at Coney Island was permanently shut down tonight, after more than forty years. Bummer deal :(
