Coney Island All Lit Up with Fireworks and Parachute Jump

June 30th, 2006 · 4 Comments


The photo above, which was posted over at Curbed today, offers a cool preview of what Brooklyn’s Eiffel Tower will look like when Boro Prez Marty Markowitz throws the switch at 9:00 PM next Friday, July 7. (It’s also pictured in the paper he mails out to Brooklynites, which hit mailboxes yesterday.) Plenty to do in Coney before then, though.

Friday Night Fireworks got off to a stormy start last Friday, but the weather may be better for tonight’s edition, which starts at 9:30. So, get you’re pre-July 4 fill. They’re also happening every Friday night through Labor Day, and the (getting beaten up on the ball field) Cyclones are shooting off their own fireworks on July 3 and September 4. (They say they’re doing fireworks tonight too, but we assume they’re talking about the Coney Friday night show.)

And, of course, if you’re up for seeing people shove hot dogs down their throats, there is the famous Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest on July 4. Starts at noon. Go see if Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi can hold on to his crown.
