Where Have All the People Gone

Coney Island in the Winter
I happened to travel to New York City yesterday and I am always looking for trails or places to walk and explore and believe it or not, found a nice quiet one in of all places New York City. To be more exact, Brooklyn (Coney Island).
I took these pics on a sunday afternoon after a snowstorm and yet the boardwalk was covered with snow and impassable, but the beach was wonderfully deserted and in perfect condition to explore the coast.
It's hard to believe that there are over 8.4 million people a few miles away, but you could never tell that by being at the beach. yes it was cold, but manageable and so very peaceful and tranquil with the white noise of the surf pounding away and allowing you to surrender to the tranquility.

My only regret is that I did not have my hiking buddy with me. I can just imagine Baily chasing the waves and the seagulls. Maybe next time.
