Joshua Brown: Coney Island Dream

Coney Island Dream from Joshua Brown on Vimeo.

An almost forgotten urban scape lies in the southeastern corner of Brooklyn. The once great Coney Island has fallen victim to urban blight and the greed of developers. What was once a bustling theme park is now covered with blue barricades and chainlink fences. Joshua Brown shot this last winter just before a large storm hit. Now with the wrecking balls coming back in full force, his short video “Coney Island Dream” takes on a whole new meaning.

Tony Fast shared this with me and it was too good to not post. It’s a little off-topic but it’s really beautiful cinematography and shows the present state of Coney Island quite well.
