While the weather may not have been great, it didn't stop hundreds of people from coming out to Coney Island to enjoy the Independence Day

CONEY ISLAND - While the weather may not have been great, it didn't stop hundreds of people from coming out to Coney Island to enjoy the Independence Day weekend.

"We waited four hours in the car for the rain to clear, so I was surprised to see this many people out here," said Becky Roland.

Many came out to walk the boardwalk or get a hot dog at Nathan's.

A few brave souls even camped out on the beach through the rain and took a swim.
