The first story was Tuesday's story on the Coney Island Sideshow School. The web version of the story is accompanied by a nice sideshow slideshow. Considering the attention she's been getting recently, it looks like sword swallower Heather Holliday is on her way to becoming quite the celebrity.
The second story was Wednesday's installment of 'Big Town Big Dreams,' a series which features different immigrant New Yorkers who have achieved their 'dream in our great city.' In this case, the featured New Yorker was Jimmy Bissan, a Yemeni immigrant and Coney Island business owner. The article focused on the ways in which the now successful Bissan gives back to the Coney Island community.
