Coney Island Boardwalk’s Last Stand


The last time I was in New York I headed to the famous Coney Island because I wanted to see it before it’s gone; and I didn’t realize that it was just a simple train ride away.

I took these shots with the Little Orange Box in the RetroCam app on my Android phone.

These oil Paintings are from the beginning of the 20th Century by artist Edward Henry Potthast, I think they capture something wonderful about Coney Island…
