New York comes undone in the summertime. At few events is this fact of NYC livin’ as palpable as at Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade. If you like mermaids, the idea of mermaids, or art, the gathering is worth your time. Billed as the world’s largest art parade, the fair’s art, food, and mermaid impersonators draw a half-million people every year. If you’re visiting Brooklyn and are looking to check out the iconic Coney Island Boardwalk anyway, you can kill two birds with one stone by showing up here.
