Coney Island Beach at Sunset - Brooklyn - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa Coney Island is the site of my favorite New York City beach. The Rockaways in Queens have become popular over the last few years and while I have fond memories of the Rockaways (since I grew up in Queens) Coney Island tugs at my heart in the best way possible. There is nothing like standing on the old pier that juts out into the Atlantic ocean while watching the waves crash onto the shore as the lights on the Wonder Wheel and the Cyclone twinkle in the distance like a tiny city of candles. When I was much younger, I moved to New Mexico for a year and a half. I was in high school at the time and many fellow students would ask me what it was like to live so close to the ocean and I could never quite explain what it was like at the time. I was always at a loss for words. It was what I grew up with and it was hard for me to imagine life without access to the ocean. Years later, it’s still hard to fully put into words what it is like: breathing in salty ocean air, viewing the night sky while listening to waves, the feel of cool sand on bare feet, jumping through the ocean with wild abandon. I think I keep taking photos in an attempt to further explain what the ocean means to me. Isn’t that why we write, take photos, paint, dance, create music and engage in a variety of other artistic pursuits? It’s to put into form those feelings and experiences that remain otherwise formless. ---
