Brighton Beach - Coney Island
After writing my last post I realized that I was indeed missing the ocean, so I headed out to Brighton Beach last weekend. I've been wanting to explore this Russian enclave ever since watching a certain episode of "Bored to Death" (yes, I'm easily influenced in this way). I met up with a good friend who took me to a Ukrainian restaurant for lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed the Russian being spoken and my amazing bowl of borscht. I was indeed transported to another place & time! I walked along the surf & made my way up to Coney Island. I couldn't stop photographing the desolation & beauty of it all! And even though I know Coney Island has been photographed by every photographer living in NY - I don't care - these are MY photos.
