Candy & Cars at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade

Coney Island Car Show - Chevy Camaro SS w/ White Racing Stripes

I hadn’t visited Coney Island since junior high school but a few summers back one of my photography groups made plans to visit Coney Island to take pictures at the annual Mermaid Parade. Although, I was born and raised in Brooklyn I’d never heard of the Mermaid Parade but I was told that that there was a car show and decided to tag along.

I had a great time at the 2011 car show and seeing photos from the 2012 Geneva show got me really excited about the 2012 New York International Auto Show. I attended the show on Friday 04/03 and had a good time taking photos.

I live in New York City and as a typical New Yorker, I don’t drive very often (it’s been about five years). However, I do like cars (if only to look at them) and try to attend the annual New York International Auto Show that is held at the Jacob Javits Center. I see the event as a few hours to live vicariously and primarily seek out vehicles that are fast, well designed, and/or technologically advanced.
