Poor Man's Riviera on Memorial Day Sunday

"This could be the best day in this kid's life, even if he lives to be a hundred." Yesterday, at the Poor Man's Riviera, Coney Island.

Doesn't the Coney Island mobile home bathroom left on the beach after Sandy look like the set from Woody Allen's "Sleeper?"

1967, Mr. Murphy took five of us knuckleheads to Coney by subway, i lost my eyeglasses and spent my first day there taking in sounds and smells with limited sight. stole pretzels, fat cop chased us, and we had a re-ride on Cyclone thanks to Mr. Murphy springing for all of us.
