Easter Sunday Coney Island

Coney Island’s Palm Sunday opener is a warm-up for Easter Sunday, among the busiest days of the season for the amusement rides and games if the sun shines. And it is! Today’s weather tweeted by NY1: “Lots of sunshine on this Easter morning. Expect temps around 53 by noon and reaching 62 as an overall high!”

Never mind the Easter bonnet, bunny headgear is hot in Coney Island aka Rabbit Island. According to dictionary.com’s “What’s the difference between a bunny, a rabbit, and a hare? (What does it have to do with Coney Island?),” until the 18th century rabbits were called coneys and Coney Island is one of the only references that is still used in North America. Hope we don’t miss you in the throng!
