The misses and I have traveled to Coney Island on several occasions to experience a place that is truly the last of its kind. The entire boardwalk/amusement park/American crazy place really has to be seen to be understood. But once you're there it crawls under your skin and makes a permanent home within. It's a lot of fun, it's weird, it's like something out of a horror movie where no real danger exists but you feel like it's going to end poorly for you anyway. In other words, it may be the best place on Earth.
Hurricane Sandy hit a few weeks ago and left my beloved Coney Island in shambles. One of the best places to visit in Coney Island is the Sideshow and Museum and Frank Kozik has created these limited edition Heathrow figures to raise money and help them rebuild. There are going to be 50 of these Fire Eater hedgehogs on sale for $30 each and all of the proceeds will go towards helping rebuild this landmark. Get yours beginning at noon Pacific time today.
