titanic at the half moon hotel

This photograph was a gift from my favorite guy at the flea market -(park slope) and I love it.  He stopped showing up in early summer last year. I’ve wondered and asked about him since and I found out a few weeks ago that he died.  He took the photo at the Half Moon Hotel in Coney Island, I’m not sure when- 70’s or 80’s probably.  He was a painter and photographer. I only new his first name – John.


  1. Ann what a shame that you do not know more about him. Would love to see more of his work. Perhaps you can share more of what you have acquired from him.

  2. Beautiful photo. Hopefully someone on the web will recognize it and give you more information on John.

  3. What an amazing photograph and story of acquisition, when I first saw it, I thought it was your work…

  4. Ohhh, what an amazing photograph! It’s so sad that he passed away…he was a talented photographer.
