NEW YORK (WLNY) — Nothing says ‘summer’ like heading to Coney Island, even if the weather begs to differ.

TV 10-55’s Alex Denis and the Mobile Couch visited the famed Brooklyn amusement park on Monday morning.

A symbolic opening Sunday marked the return of the amusement rides on Coney Island after the damage they suffered from Superstorm Sandy.

But as Denis reported, the celebration was not welcome news to some area residents.

Politicians and other leaders were proud to announce that following the devastation from Sandy, Luna Park at Coney Island is opening on schedule to kick off the 2013 season.
