The famed Coney Island. A place Kadijah James once beaconed as a place to get mugged on the legendary sitcom Living Single. As a New York transplant, this place was never a destination for me. In fact, because of Queen Latifah's stubborn 90's character, I was a little scared to visit. I did not want to get mugged! Nevertheless, this summer I got bored not traveling and needed an adventure. I figured if I had a good time that would be great and if I got mugged it would give me a great story to tell. To be honest, I really only set upon this voyage because I wanted corn dogs from Nathans. I wanted to ride the infamous Cyclone but corn dogs were definitely a priority for me.  I and my boyfriend arrived at the amusement park kind of late but my list was definitely checked off: corn dogs, Cyclone, and a scary, swinging Ferris wheel ride- in that order. The corndogs were definitely worth it but should never be eaten before conquering a 90-year-old rollercoaster.
