Coney Island Street Art Makes Colorful Return

A new street art display is once again making a return this summer to Coney Island.

A total of 32 pieces are now standing on Stillwell Avenue behind Nathan's as part of the Coney Art Walls.

They feature work by artists from around the world, as well as here in the city.

Lee Quinones got his start on the Lower East Side, but says Coney Island has the perfect vibe to experience street art.

"Coney Island is a very festive place, it's a place you come to forget about all the moving parts of the rat race, the New York shuffle, it's great to come out here. The colors here, the energy, and the commitment in these walls is such a beautiful reflection of what Coney Island is," Quinones said.

The walls will stay up at Coney through September.
