Coney Island of the Mind


I'm going to Coney Island tomorrow to see it before it is gone. I have a lot of photos of it circa 1975, but as you know if you read this, all that is left are the proofsheets. Back then, it was a blighted zone, as was NYC (see "Midnight Cowboy", 1969). I don't know what to expect. Everywhere I go looks like someplace else now. Like biodiversity, cultural diversity is disappearing at an alarming rate. I wrote something about this over at another fellow's site, All The Dumb Things. He is another guy playing around with his past and present, an Australian Hellboy.

Fingers crossed.

Looking forward to see your writings and your images from Coney Island. I remember the images from there by Robert Frank and others.
But that was forty years ago.
