Photo and caption by Michael Gunadi

Coney Island in winter is an eerie and beautiful place. I left the sun-drenched boardwalk and walked up to an otherwise empty platform at West 8th Street station. The light was surreal - a hallmark of the place the native Lenape once knew as "Narrioch" (the land without shadows).

Location: Coney Island, New York
