Always wondered what life is really like under the Coney Island Boardwalk, but never wanted to risk a dirty syringe in the foot to find out? Photographer Nathan Kensinger (friend of Gothamist) recently tied up his combat boots and went exploring down there for the benefit of all. What he found was just what you'd expect: rusty urban flotsam and jetsam, homeless living in tents, and poetic shafts of light. Oh, and a prop shark that one Kinetic Carnival commenter alleges was stolen last fall from the Surf & Turf Grill on Surf Avenue. Well, guess we can close the file on that one! Nice work, Kensinger.
