coney island

Once called the playground of the world, Coney Island is now but a shadow of its former self. These images show the last remaining months of a park which will be transformed over the next few years into a Las Vegas-themed section of Brooklyn, New York. The combination of black and white images and color represent the duality of its current state of flux, both a nostalgic, historical look as well as a glimpse of the colorful, quirky corners of life that still keep the park running.
