Signbite : Coney Island Freak Show : July 10, 2011

Oh dear. We were hoping for something a bit out there, a bit of exceptional kitsch – but this was more like your flatmates from Newtown swirling around their pet snake while making toast. The signage was cute though and I guess it was a somewhat appropriate introduction into the generally decaying carcass of Coney Island.
