an abnormally low tide was a pretty good reason to head to coney island creek to check out some abandoned / scuttled boats including one submarine that was launched in the 70's (in an attempt to recover valuables from a shipwreck off the coast of nantucket) - which promptly sunk.

- just read about a photo exhibition opening soon at the brooklyn museum entitled "Goodbye Coney Island?" - "It consists of more than fifty photos from the museum's collection and "traces traces the evolution of this fabled part of New York over the past 125 years. Coney Island has undergone many transformations since it first became a popular resort in the nineteenth century and a prospective redevelopment plan may yet again change this section of Brooklyn." The photos will be on display from November 28, 2007–April 6, 2008, in the Visible Storage Study Center of the Luce Center for American Art. About a third of the photographs are prints of digitally scanned late nineteenth and early twentieth-century glass-plate negatives from the Brooklyn Museum collection."
