People at Coney Island in the Brooklyn borough of New York experience sunny weather while Hurricane Irene bears down on the eastern seaboard further south, Friday, Aug. 26, 2011. The low number of visitors at the typically crowded beach reflects the wind, rain, and flooding dangers the storm poses to the already saturated New York state. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)
