Coney Island boardwalk dive Ruby's made its glorious return on Easter Sunday but had its "official" opening day this past Saturday. Though the big "Space For Lease" sign still graces the building—apparently landlord Thor Equities won't remove it—Ruby's is here to stay, at least for '09. In addition to a new blog, Ruby's has a fun addition this year, courtesy of the Coney Island developers. A regular explains:
"A double row of fencing is in place due to the ongoing Boardwalk reconstruction...friends joked it was the 'VIP Lounge' because Boardwalk strollers peered through the fence wondering how to get in. The two entrances to the fenced in area are via the ramps on Stillwell Ave and W 12 St."Also something to check out: the new Flickr group Coney Island is Alive and Kicking.
