On a hot summer day in 1987, join Michael Musto and friends for a graffiti-splattered subway ride from (unrecognizable) Union Square to (recently demolished) Coney Island. It’s another gem from filmmaker Nelson Sullivan.
When artist Albert Crudo gets on in Bensonhurst he tells of “these horrible girls” on the platform who commented on his gender presentation: “It’s a guy! It’s a guy!” Musto passes the time by defacing images of 1950s Hollywood starlets.
Today they’d be hipsters. But it’s not today. It’s the ’80s.
When they finally arrive at their destination, the glimpse of Coney’s ghosts might break your heart.
