Gothamist attended the 25th annual Coney Island Mermaid Day Parade yesterday and not surprisingly, we found that many of the marchers had chosen the impending doom of Coney Island as we know it as their theme and for some reason there were a few Starbucks inspired costumes. Despite the dark clouds on the horizon for the area, the day was a perfect early summer day and just right for the parade. 2007's Queen Mermaid was actress and Brooklynite Patti D'Arbanville and in order to bust myths about the demise of the parade amid the impending storm, Mythbuster Adam Savage was King Neptune.
