Gowanus Gallery Opens with Coney Show

Coney Photo Reception

This was the scene on Thursday night at the opening of Coney Island of the Heart at the Bond Street Gallery in Gowanus. The neighborhood's first photography gallery is "housed in a 100-year-old townhouse. Inside, it has exposed brick walls, and out back is a tranquil courtyard." The show features photos shot by Harold Feinstein and "celebrates the history of Coney Island as the playground of the working-class melting pot through exuberant and singular images of the Jews, Italians, African-Americans, Russians, Puerto Ricans, and others who have played there." The gallery is located at 297 Bond Street. There was a showing of James White Photos going on at the dance studio next door as well. That photo is below.
