Go Coney Island Time Lapse with Artist Africasso (VIDEO!)

If there is one place in the world to save during the apocalypse it’s Coney Island, Brooklyn. I know it’s corny to say, but it’s so real. Real New York. Real Brooklyn. Real characters. Real hot dogs! It’s where my father taught me how to take pictures, where I learned to muster the guts to walk right up to anyone, no matter how crazy they look, and ask for a portrait. Plus the Cyclone is there!

I wrote an article and photo essay of my adventures with a Coney Island artist named Africasso during Go Brooklyn for Hyperallergic, which is an outstanding Brooklyn based art blog.

I also made this quick video to share with Greenpointers readers and dedicated it to my dad. Enjoy!

About Jen G

After living in NYC my entire life, I found the strongest sense of community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Running this blog is truly an honor and the best part is meeting its readers in real life. Everyday I am energized by smiles and inspiring conversations with fellow Greenpointers who tirelessly do and create incredible things that are good for our community and share the same love I have for life here. If you see me walking with my little dog "D" - please say hi!
