Catching up with some of my rss feeds found this nice little photo over at Flora Douvillea blog about Parisian Life:

Reminded me of a photo I took a few weeks ago at Coney Island:

A sort of visual association game Brooklyn’s answer to Paris but what’s interesting is the comparions go deeper. That wire structure towering outside the Brooklyn Cyclone’s MCU Park has, according to wikipedia, been named the Eiffel tower of Brooklyn. The comparions between Brooklyn USA and Paris FR go further as well. Grand Army Plaza

grand army plaza

is also called Brooklyn’s Arc de Triomphe. What’s with the overlap? To my knowledge Manhattan doesn’t look for such parity. If it means beautiful structures to pretty up the place I guess I’ll take it.
