Photo Booth Under the Wonder Wheel

Last month, a former Brooklynite whose daughter would soon be celebrating her 4th birthday was looking for a photo booth in New York City. “Every year we’ve gone to a photo booth for her birthday and this year we cannot find one,” he wrote. “All the ones we’ve used, or seen, have been removed. We’re from Brooklyn, but now live in PA, and we’re visiting this weekend. Is there a booth that’s in an accessible area?”

The only one we could think of that wasn’t in a dive bar and was open is in Manhattan’s Ace Hotel in the Flatiron district. The concierge said it is open to the public. They have them at all of their hotel locations. Under the Wonder Wheel in Coney Island, which opens for the 2014 season on Sunday, there is both an old-fashioned black and white and a color photo booth. So much better than a selfie!

New for 2014 in Coney Island! One of Miss Coney Island‘s dancing cats is sporting a Marilyn Monroe badge. Just call her Marilyn.

The dancing doll and cats are a popular attraction on West 12th Street across from the Steeplechase coaster. It costs a quarter a dance.

This freshly painted little pony from the classic Mangels Pony Cart at Deno’s Kiddie Park will soon be back on the ride’s platform. In the meantime, he appears to be chomping at the bit for Coney Island’s Opening Day. It’s only 15 days away! The Palm Sunday opener, featuring the Blessing of the Rides at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park and the ceremonial Egg Cream Christening of the front car of the Cyclone, is April 13th.
