Pray for Coney Island

In 2009 I did this joint as an ode to the neighborhood I grew up in, Coney Island. With last weeks hurricane Coney Island is nothing like it once was. Homes destroyed, lives turned upside down & utter chaos. I’m re-upping this song to remember C.I. as it once was & to provide a source of inspiration to the remaining C.I. residence.
