The 34th annual Mermaid Parade took place in Coney Island this weekend. Like all parades, getting a good view can be a bit hectic. Luckily, there was enough action to catch in the surrounding area.
Coney Art Walls is a public art project curated by Jeffery Deitch. Running in its second year, it features a good collection of street artists and muralists. The parade afterparty provided a nice opportunity to catch mermaids in front of artistic backdrops. Shout out to Sonya, Stephanie, Christie, and everyone I photographed.
