Coney Island, Brooklyn!

(All photos ęD. Matlack 2004-2012)

Coney Island is a most exciting place with a great past, a "national treasure", part of our collective memory and vivid present. Nathan's Famous, the Cyclone, the Parachute Jump, Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, not to mention the beautiful swimming beaches, and MUA Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. Don't miss the Mermaid Parade and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and New Year's Day with the Polar Bear Club! And how about Coney Island Creek? Rustic/industrial, great birding, a natural paradise. I also have been privileged to be a member of a community garden which provides fresh produce and beauty to the neighborhood. I hope you enjoy my photos, it's really been quite a journey over the past years, so many different facets of Coney Island, ever changing rearranging.
