My visit to the lower level Gallery at the Deutsche Bank building at 60 Wall Street was a far reach from Coney Island!

However, there was a lovely exhibit by some of Coney Island artists on display for this ‘special’ showing last night.

On hand were The New York Variety All Stars to entertain the exhibit viewers.
