This family paid their way, but you’d be surprised how many people who snap photos of Miss Coney Island are too cheap to drop 25 cents in the machine. If they happen to see the mannequin come to life and wiggle her hips, it’s on someone else’s quarter.

Remember, Miss Coney does not receive a salary. Her only way of paying the rent on Jones Walk is your spare change. Next time you visit, I recommend bringing a whole roll of quarters to spend on Miss Coney Island and her neighbor, Coney Island Always. As the sign says, “Don’t Postpone Joy!”
