So, I've been dragging myself into NYC for the past couple of weeks, maybe 4x a week so far, and doing my little amateur's damndest to start getting a feel for street photography. Needless to say, it's been an unbelievably fun experience so far, and I love it. Having said that though, I live in Queens, but work in Central Suffolk County! I drive home to Queens, and hurriedly grab the LIRR to Penn, which gets me to good light areas around 6:30/45. The problem I'm having is that this time of day, the light is amazing, but already partly over, and the cost of taking the LIRR into NYC is $5.75 each way. At $11.50 a day, if I want to shoot even 3x a week, that's $35 per week! Not easy when you're saving for a wedding, a house, pay Queens rent, car insurance, car loan, etc. etc. wahh wahhh complaining blah. Anyway, I was thinking, for the time being, where are some places in Queens, Brooklyn, or wherever that may be easier for me to get to, and could be just as bountiful in terms of street photography subjects & compositions? I've seen that there are entire monographs out there on Coney Island and Brooklyn, so I know these places are good, I just don't know where to go to start out. Thanks pals! Happy shooting.
