The landscape of New York keeps on changing, but Coney Island is cruising through time with the same vivid and dissolute charm, against its own “transition.” As summer wraps up, the gritty seaside amusement district is effervescent, the boardwalk filled with bronzed and tattooed flesh and grinning characters, chasing and squeezing in the last bit of the New York-style endless summer. See them in the gallery above. (Photos: Stephane Missier/ANIMALNewYork)
