First Snow Coney Island

A snowy night in Coney Island illuminated by the Parachute Jump is as much of a photo op as the beach and boardwalk on a summer’s day. Coney possesses a quiet beauty on a snowy day or night. This week’s first snowfall of the winter was photographed from the shore by Coney Island resident and Polar Bear Club member Bruce Handy. In past years, ATZ has posted Bruce’s first snow of the season photos in late January, December and in October 2011 during the rare weather event known as Snowtober.

Coney Island resident and photographer Bruce Handy went out yesterday to capture the first snow of the season on the beach and boardwalk. Our fave image shows a serene Coney Island Boardwalk and its signature Parachute Jump viewed through a snow-flecked lens. The pristine beauty of the scene makes the ugliness of the ongoing Boardwalk evictions and Surf Avenue demolitions recede temporarily.

Bruce also photographed the Coney Island Polar Bears Swim at the start of the blizzard. You can watch his slide show and video (with a soundtrack by Cirque De Soleil) on YouTube.

If you haven’t dropped by since before Christmas, yes it is indeed snowing on ATZ thanks to our blog host WordPress.com! Snow is expected through January 4.
