Bruce Gilden Coney Island Tour

A special tour of the iconic summer destination for New Yorkers

Two adults and three young children walk on the Coney Island boardwalk

About the Event

Bruce Gilden takes us back to the Coney Island he has known since 1969, one year after he had picked up his first camera, and where he worked until the late 1980s.

As he gives a special tour of the iconic summer destination for New Yorkers, and comments on its changes over the years, Gilden shares stories of his long hours of walking back and forth on the beach and the boardwalk, capturing sunbathers, sideshow freaks and all manner of characters enjoying their day off in "Brooklyn by the sea."

Try your hand at whimsical street photography while on the tour–cameras are encouraged!

Details will follow about exact meeting place on Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY.

*Tickets for the event include museum admission and can be redeemed through the end of September.
