A sleepy and hungry mermaid.
If you haven't seen it on Curbed or Gothamist just yet, the Coney Island Mermaid has taken her hunger strike online. So far, it's 42 hours and counting in an effort to draw attention to a public scoping session held by the city tomorrow night. Anyone and everyone can get online and reach out to her right now by clicking this link to her live stream.
The hunger strike will end tomorrow night. She will break the fast with watermelon juice and the strong likelihood of a Nathan's frank (she says that she can smell them now).
