There's nothing like a Dane

At least if one is a New York City official, looking for bright ideas as to how to tart up Coney Island. Apparently the owners of the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen will be acting as advisers. Source.

Can't say I've been to either place, and have very little interest in fun fairs and the like, but what comes to mind is that the Tivoli Gardens supposedly suffer from large numbers of drunken Swedes, which might be more difficult to arrange in Brooklyn than Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is OK, Mr C. You should try it for a long weekend some time. The Tivoli gardens are nothing special and the amusement park is just like any other tatty similar place anywhere in the world. I think the Hard Rock cafe just outside the gardens must be one of the most expensive in the world, so only go in if you are feeling rich!. Lots of nice restaurants and bars along the waterfront. Can't say I noticed and drunks of any nationality when I was last there.

Agree with Nomad, the Tivoli gardens are rather middle of the road, certainly nothing special. I don't remember too many drunks, but then it is a rather expensive place to drink if I remember correctly. Copenhagen's worth a flying visit en route to somewhere else, but not somewhere to go out of the way for.
