Goodbye Coney Island

Wonder Wheel, originally uploaded by van swearingen.

For those who don't know it Coney Island is about to get the 42nd Street treatment and everything that's fun, shabby, sexy and possibly life-threatening will be bleached right the f*** out of it.

The Brooklyn Museum is hosting a retrospective (and memorial) photo exhibit and has started this Flickr pool of Coney Images. Please visit and contribute.
