Cherry’s Travel Diary

Friday, 15 Dec 2006

Location: NYC, USA

MapWe went around to Coney Island and Brighton Beach. About 45 minutes from Manhattan (see photos in NYC 3). Coney Island is dead on the winter time but basically it's a beach with a run down version of Luna park as the main attraction. Very festive during summer up to October but nothing opened when we got there. We knew this but still wanted to walk around it anyway.
Every year they have a hotdog eating competition, the winner for 5 times in a row was a Japanese with around 52 and a quarter of hotdogs yuueecckksks!!!

Brighton Beach and its surrounding is filled with Russians and felt like it was another country altogether. Along the street there were tiny little shops and markets.

Got to experienced all the different boroughs in NY...Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island. It's amazing to see all the difference between the hood, the people and the shops.
