Sonia Solano reflects on living in Coney Island with her husband since the 1990s, raising their children here, and working in local schools. She remembers happy times and difficult times, including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. "Coney Island means everything to me," says Solano."I came here young, I have my children. They've grow up. They play here, they went to school here. Besides Puerto Rico, I was born there, Coney Island is everything. I've been here thirty years."
