Coney Island’s New Attractions: Ephameron, Veng, Overunder, ND’A and Radical!

Posted on June 14, 2011

Arts impresario Keith Schweitzer gives famed and storied Coney Island in Brooklyn a boost of carney charm with his newly curated construction wall collection painted by colorful characters Over Under, N’DA, Radical!, Veng, and Ephemeron.

As Coney Island undergoes a slick redevelopment that some worry will zap it’s old world quixotic quirkiness, this motley crew of Street Artists regale the area with a sense of the fantastical unreality that has always permeated this salaciously savory and seedy amusement park.

With thoughts of curvaceous mermaids, scream-inducing rides, fun house mirrors, obnoxious winking barkers, and a hot sweaty kiss behind a tent curtain all swirling through your mind, one can easily appreciate this new free associating imagery that jumps and undulates along  oceanic walls.

“Under the Boardwalk” – N’DA makes reference here to lyrics from the song made famous by The Drifters, released in June 1964. Here’s the original for you to listen to as you scroll through the rest of these images from the boardwalk.
