Coney Island Wonder Wheel
Lithograph print titled Coney Island Wonder Wheel, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts the view of Coney Island as seen from the Wonder Wheel Ferris wheel. In the distance is the lower Manhattan skyline including the One World Trade Center building. The print is signed.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center, created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
