With temps in the mid-90s, today is a perfect beach day. If you haven’t taken a dip in the ocean yet at Coney Island’s Beach, what are you waiting for? The City’s Parks Department officially opened Coney’s beach for the season on Memorial Day Weekend, but the ceremonial Opening of the Ocean took place at last Saturday’s Mermaid Parade. In this photo by East Coast Images, Queen Mermaid and Brooklyn-born actress Annabella Sciorra uses a giant pair of scissors to cut the ribbon representing the seasons. More East Coast Images of the 30th Annual Mermaid here.
