I have been having fun checking out Coney Island's historical (as in it's been going on since 1983) Annual Mermaid Parade. It is the largest Art Parade held in the USA.
It is held every year, but this year it might not happen.
That would be sad.
Hurricane Sandy has wiped out/damaged the entire area. Just like most of the Island's businesses, the Mermaid parade admin building was severely damaged.
