How I Work: Lost in Coney Island



The one place I had to visit while in New York was Coney Island.  Once upon a time people spent holidays here and enjoyed the amusement park.  Over the years, it's lost much of its splendor.  That kind of makes me love the area even more.

I just find it so fascinating how "empires" of sorts crumble.  As you look through my photos, can you almost see the ghosts of Coney Island's glory days?  The dim evening light and few visitors add to the desolate vibe.

Learn more about Coney Island's past on Wikipedia.  Did you know that the name means Rabbit Island?
