EDC Picnic at Coney Island

On Friday August 7th, EDC had their Annual Summer Picnic. This year it was held at Coney Island. Coney Island is on the verge of being either re-vamped (God-willing) with help of City Funding and private donations or shut down completely to make space for a resort. A third of the parks attractions have been shut down so far but the spirit of Coney Island has not diminished. Living in NYC almost all my life has made me realize that there is so much that us New Yorker's take for granted. The beautiful city skylines, the colorful Botanical Gardens and the youthful sounds of children playing in the parks. I love this city and the older I get the more respect I have the wonderful city that has become my home!! I am not sure how much longer I will live here but I know for sure that I will always carry NYC in my heart forever.

Here are a few pics of Coney Island and my co-workers:
