Yes, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade is fabulous for street photography! Coney Island is also great for street photography the rest of the year! Especially in the Summer! I have an upcoming street photography workshop in Coney Island on 9 July with only a couple spaces still available and you can register on my site.

Happy Summer!

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is an annual event with a 35 year history. It is a celebration on the Summer Solstice. You’ll see amazing costumes and a festive atmosphere. It is my 10th year of photographing it! You can see some of my photos from previous years at https://www.leannestaples.com/coney-island-mermaid-parade/

Mermaids in Brooklyn

As parades go, the Mermaid Parade is my favorite of all NYC parades. As street photography goes, I tend to like candid shots, capturing human expression that is unposed and undirected. And I tend to prefer b&w.
