Coney Island in winter: New York photo feature

I’ve always been drawn to Coney Island, a faded seaside resort  in southern Brooklyn facing the breezy Atlantic Ocean.

Once a thriving retreat for New Yorkers, the area has been slowly decaying for decades, and worrying new big business plans look set to remove any remaining charm from the seafront.  Here’s some photos from my visit last year.
