Here’s Another Reason to Visit Coney Island This Summer
The scenery of Coney Island is an iconic part of New York, and just in time for summer, Greenwood Beach at Coney Art Walls is open for the season (fully finished just a few days ago in time for the Mermaid Parade). The open air art display is brought to you by Jeffrey Deitch, the brains behind the Wynwood Walls in Miami.
In addition to being home for the pop-up artwork, the site is home to Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Rink and a weekly outdoor roller disco party every Sunday. Conveniently located throughout the space are food vendors including Calexico, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, and Gianna’s Ices – while you choose what to snack on, you can enjoy the sounds of live music too. Of course, there’s no forgetting that this fun to-do on your checklist is just steps away from all the traditional Coney Island attractions.
Take a peek at some of our favorite scenes from our recent visit:
Greenwood Beach at Coney Art Walls is located at 3050 Stillwell Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11224 (right in between the original Nathan’s and the Coney Island boardwalk).
