The Coney Island shown here is the last outpost of a forgotten culture, where exhibitionism retains its human scale and its original spontaneous flaws. Yet for all the diminished expectations, these images also reveals a Coney that is very much alive. The mermmaids who parade down the boardwalk remain defiantly un-Disneyfied. The bathers have no look of putting on airs. The seaside strollers need no guidebooks to find their way. They are still resolutely inside the story of their lives.
(Key Words: Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City, Photography, Cities, Harvey Stein, David Lindsey).
