Steeplechase Pier
A thousand feet jutting out into the Atlantic, from the boardwalk through the beach, Coney Island's oceanside pier is a popular spot for fishermen and also beach visitors looking to get out into the ocean without getting their feet wet. And it's a popular spot from which to observe the neighborhood's weekly fireworks displays. "The pier is a seperate planet in the universe of Coney," photographer Bruce Handy wrote on the Amusing the Zillion blog. "It’s got soul, character and passion." The pier was damaged by Superstorm Sandy, but repair work has been ongoing since at least March, and it's expected to reopen by the Fourth of July. [photo]
