Early morning on the Coney Island boardwalk, before the crowds, before the tourists and thrill seekers, before the hot dogs and pizza slices, there are the local fitness buffs – the bikers, the joggers, the skaters, the pull-up... pullers?, and the occasional boxing enthusiast, taking advantage of the two-and-a-half-mile stretch of wide open boardwalk, the sea air, and the relative solitude and anonymity. For these early risers, its’s a chance to be alone with their bodies and their thoughts, something that’s hard to find in a city like New York. It’s a nice time to be here.
