Coney Island Dreams

Hurricane Sandy was the second costliest hurricane in American history; with damage surpassing over $65 billion to date. When it struck in late October, 2012, it affected 24 states across the USA. With severe damage to the states of New York and New Jersey, efforts to re-build are still underway, and the destruction is tangible. A thick fog hung over Luna Park when I visited Coney Island, New York, in June 2013. The Wonder Wheel impalpably lingered in the background; both literally and proverbially, a shadow of its former self.
