Coney Island Is NYC’s New Mecca For Street Art

From a four-legged woman to countless firebreathers, Coney Island has always offered New Yorkers a wealth of extraordinary sites. The amusement park is back at it again this summer with a fabulously funky outdoor art gallery.

Starting May 27th, Coney Art Walls returns for its second edition, this year featuring 21 new works from established artists and aspiring talents alike. Co-curated by Jeffrey Deitch, a former director of the LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the event incorporates 55,000 square feet of space to hold the world-class art exhibit, all of which sits alongside the rides and thrills of Coney Island.

Browse the artwork while chowing down on a Nathan’s hot dog (it is indeed it’s 100th anniversary) or grab a bite from one of the countless Smorgasburg vendors. Oh, and there’ll also be live music and a full bar for added fun. Come out and embrace New York’s quirky side, one piece of art at a time.
