On Friday afternoon, New York City’s Parks Department welcomed Snowstorm Nemo to Coney Island by closing the Boardwalk. Charles Denson, who was at work rebuilding the Coney Island History Project‘s exhibit center damaged by Superstorm Sandy, stepped out onto West 12th Street and saw these red flags on the ramp. The warning was put up due to snow, wind and a possible storm surge.

Today, the flags remain though the Boardwalk is open again, with Tom’s Restaurant serving breakfast (and lunch) all day. Polar Bear Diane Shumate posted on Facebook that snow accumulation in Coney Island was approximately 6 inches and the Bears were going for a snow swim.
