Thursday Morning in Coney Island: Breakfast on the Riegelmann Boardwalk

On our last morning in Brooklyn before we head to Arizona for the winter, we took a brown bag breakfast and got on the R train from 95th Street to 59th Street, where we caught the N train to the Stillwell Avenue terminal in Coney Island to enjoy a sunny December morning on the Riegelmann Boardwalk and see the ocean again.
Just four weeks since seeing the destroyed Rockaway boardwalk on Thanksgiving, we were grateful that the Coney Island boardwalk was still basically intact.
On our way home, we saw what looked like some sort of press conference
at the still-shuttered Nathan's,
which will reopen this coming spring. Although we're glad to be getting out of a cold Northeastern winter, we'll still be missing Brooklyn while we're in the warmer desert Southwest.
