ALULKI MULUVAY (ABoUV) AND UDAN Sands of Coney Island almost disappear on summer Saturdays and Sundays, when more than a million sunbathers throng the beach. On this midweek outing, a family finds the resort strangely quiet. More than eight million New Yorkers, nearly the population of Greater London, crowd into less than half London's area. Four of the five city boroughs are on islands; only the Bronx lies on the mainland. Fruits and vegetables painted on his barn advertise products grown by Staten Island er Herbert Gericke (left), one of New York City's few farmers. Richard Gericke will help his father plant young fruit trees.
