Coney Island's Wonderful Weirdness

On my recent visit to NYC, I was reminded of the amazing handmade vernacular that is prevalent throughout what is this modern city, especially in places like the quickly-disappearing Coney Island. From reclaimed materials to hand-painted signs to graffiti and well-worn, antique textures, Coney Island is a treasure-trove of handmade design from times past. While it may have seen better days, and may even cease to exist in the near future, there are thankfully a number of photographers, both amateur and professional, documenting the weirdness that is Coney Island. Check out a few of such artists here.
