As summer slips away, it’s likely that the crowds and the lines at Coney Island will fade along with it, but the best time to visit Coney Island will probably always be the early morning. It’s by no means abandoned, but there’s a quiet anticipation in the air, every glimpse of the almost-empty boardwalk hints at what’s to come. This short look at Coney Island pre- and post-crowd captures that anticipation, and throws some Boards of Canada in for good measure. It’s almost enough to make you want to set an alarm clock and head for the boardwalk.
