I have been photographing the people and places in Coney Island for almost 8 years. When Hurricane Sandy hit I began to photograph the devastation almost immediately . The photo that I posted shows how debris overed almost all of the streets in Coney Island . The air was so thick that it was almost impossible to breathe. Stores along Mermaid Ave were completely destroyed. 

I am having an exhibit of my  photographs at the Coney Island branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. The library itself was destroyed th the storm and had to be rebuilt . 

The address is 1901 Mermaid Avenue Brooklyn New York 11224  718-265-3220

The hours are Monday to Friday 10:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M.  the library is closed Saturday and Sunday 

The exhibit will run from 10/23 13 thru 12/15 13
