New Photo Gallery in Gowanus
There's an impending gallery opening to report in Gowanus. It's the Bond Street Gallery, a photo gallery that will be opening at Bond and Union. Word was passed along by Dalton Rooney who produces the excellent photoblog seriously excited!, whose work we often link on Saturdays. In any case, the gallery is work of photographer agent Bruce Kramer and photographer Robert DiScalfani. It's the areas first photography gallery and is "housed in a 100-year-old townhouse that the founders have restored while keeping the original structure and feel of the building intact. Inside it has exposed brick walls, and out back is a tranquil courtyard." The first show will feature Coney Island photos shot by Harold Feinstein. The show is called Coney Island of the Heart and Coney Island of the Heart 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."
