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!

On Saturday in Coney Island, two classic Chevrolets in front of the original Nathan’s Famous were the center of attention for tourists and locals alike. The 1957 Bel Air and the 1963 Impala were parked on Stillwell Avenue while their owners were inside ordering lunch.

The rolled down windows of the Bel Air afforded a glimpse of trophies from classic car shows and souvenirs. Tourists from France, Scotland and Manhattan took advantage of the photo op while we were there.

The Bel Air was graced with a SATCHMO license plate, though a statue of Elvis Presley rested in the back seat. The Impala had a miniature version of itself in the back window…

Here’s another photo that shows both classic cars. One of our friends shot virtually the same photo in black and white, lending it the look of a photo taken back in the 1960s. The original Nathan’s opened at this location in 1916.

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.
