We like to pop in on Joe the Shark’s Sharkbite Sideshow burlesque show every now and then, a tasty nibble of our beloved Coney Island happening regularly on the Lower East Side. These photos by photographer Gene Kennish are from way back in March! The coldest March we can remember in a long time… Enjoy!
