At the beginning of Summer of this year, I went to Coney Island to see the Mermaid Parade. And while I was there, I took pictures of the Coney Art Walls with Lynn and Justin from Mad Hatters NYC and Becca from Tea With B Blog. But see the problem with that was that my camera was in for repair and my phone wanted to cooperate and die at the mid-afternoon point. I shot a couple of the walls but the pictures were of the struggle variety and weren’t good enough for a post. So I made another attempt to get out to Coney Island before the end of Summer and bear the two-hour train ride, I did it with bonus fireworks! Yes, damn it!!
What Are the Coney Art Walls
Coney Art Walls is an outdoor museum of street art in Luna Park featuring 35 walls from well-known artists. Every year the walls are updated and I love it! It is a very popular spot for fashion bloggers and locals to shoot and tourists as well. The detail of the works is so wonderful that you can totally just stare at them for hours if it wasn’t so crowded during the park hours.
What Did I See At The Coney Art Walls
I didn’t get to take pictures of all 35 walls because I didn’t want to miss the fireworks but I got a good majority. Just a sidenote, if you are going to eat amusement park food stop at Nathan’s Famous for the seafood platter (which I didn’t know that they had) and get a freshly made funnel cake. I was so bad that being healthy that night.
Anywho, the walls were amazing and a must see! They are located at 3050 Stillwell Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11224, the hours vary depending on the season and are worth going to no matter what time of year that you decide to go. Here are my favorites from the collection of this year:
