Coney Island

 Ever since I saw the movie Uptown Girls, I've wanted to check out Coney Island. We spent 4th of July there. The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest was happening that day. I had seen it on TV in the past and it was even more gross in person. Gross, yet impressive. The build up to the main event is so dramatic and funny. I thought eating one hotdog was enough. I can't imagine having 72 in ten minutes... After the contest, we went to the beach and then went on some rides. My favorite was the famous Cyclone roller coaster. We tried to see the fireworks from Williamsburg after, but we were pretty far away. We ended up staying at The Williamsburg Hotel. It's a newer hotel and I love the design. Their breakfast is good too. I never thought I would say this, but I could for sure live in Brooklyn.
