I went to Coney Island recently not expecting to see anything worthy of a blog post.
My typical Coney Island visit goes like this: gripe about parking, park, walk the boardwalk, complain about how hot it is, and sit on the pier. Then get up and move from the pier, Nathan’s for a chili cheese dog and drink, walk on boardwalk, complain, go home. In that order.
During my visit, I saw people taking pics of what looked like street art which I’m completely fascinated by most days. Then I saw it was an entire outdoor exhibit. What an unexpected surprise! Of course I checked it out!
My favorite two walls are the two seen below. The first, to me, reminds me of what New York is and the second I was struck by the detail and talent it took to create this. I was so mad a truck was parked in front of it obstructing the view.
Lately I’ve been watermarking my pics but I couldn’t bring myself to put my blog name on someone else’s works of art. Plates of food and pics at the park, yes. Artwork, no. Even I have to draw the line somewhere.
