About This Walk

Hi Photo Walkers!

I am a New Jersey based photographer and have been shooting professionally for over 20 years. This will be my fourth photo walk. My previous walks were all in NJ, but this year I am venturing back to where I was born and raised…Brooklyn!

What better place to see and photograph then the infamous Coney Island. It is best known for it’s amusement parks, both past and present and has a long history as a resort and entertainment destination. Much has changed over the years, but it still holds a mystique with unique attractions from the strange to the kitschy. We’ll still find the landmarked Parachute Jump, the Wonder Wheel, the Cyclone (90 years old this year), and of course Nathan’s Famous.

Many of the rides and attractions remain open through October on the weekends and it will be less crowded by then. I have no doubt plenty of colorful photo opportunities await at this salty, seedy and sensational destination. More detailed info will follow in the coming weeks after I scout out an interesting walk, I will keep you updated. 

In the meantime, sign-up and join me for a visit to NY City’s “playground”.

Best
