[VIDEO] This New Yorker is Doing His Best to Keep Coney Island "Freaky"

In this profile video from our friends at BRIC TV, meet Dick Zigun, the man on a mission to keep Coney Island freaky.

Founder of the Coney Island USA, a non-profit arts organization and known as the permanently un-elected mayor of Coney Island, Dick Zigun is committed to keeping the summer destination weird all year round. Hear how he got his start, why he's drawn to the bohemia of Coney Island now that he's in his 80's, AND get the scoop on where the best bathroom on the beach is.

Follow @DickZigun on Twitter to keep up with the "mayor".
