Freedom Friday is upon us again my friends.
Random shots from my travels around the city.
See What Eye See…
A couple of weekends ago I took a ride out to Coney Island to check out to Mermaid Parade and to see the new improved Coney Island.
Boy did we have a great time, between the rides in Luna Park and the sights we saw. My niece loved the new rides for children.
If you have not been out to Coney Island lately you should do so. And makes sure you stop by Nathan’s for a world famous hot dog. And grab some cotton candy while your there.
Home to famous rides like the Cyclone Roller Coaster, the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump, this historic seaside section of Brooklyn is about an hour by train from Manhattan and still boasts a lively boardwalk, beach, and the best hot dogs around.

A couple of websites for Coney Island
This is one the the many reasons I LOVE BROOKLYN...”Celebrate Brooklyn”.
All summer long they have free concerts for any and everyone.
This Saturday I went to see Les Nubians preform at Prospect Park. And let me tell you it was well worth being outside in what felt like 100 plus degrees that evening.
Les Nubians is an R&B Grammy-nominated duo composed of sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart from Paris, France. In 1985 the sisters moved with their parents to Chad. Seven years later, they returned to Bordeaux, France, and began singing a cappella, producing poetry slams in Bordeaux and Paris, and singing background vocals for various artists worldwide. The duo’s debut album Princesses Nubiennes was released by Virgin Records, France, in 1998.
They have become one of the most successful French-language musical groups in the U.S., best known for their Billboard R&B Single “Makeda” from their Grammy nominated album Princesses Nubiennes. Les Nubians were the 1999 Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards winners for Best New Artist, Group or Duo and received two NAACP Image Awards nominations in 2000.
