Barbecue-happy Brooklynites aren’t the only ones getting their backyard ready for summer. Over on Bond Street, photographer Robert DiScalfani is putting the finishing touches on the patio — as well as two floors of a 100-year-old house — that, on March 27, will open to the public as the Bond Street Gallery.

“I’ve been a photographer since I was 13 years old,” said DiScalfani, a Carroll Gardens resident, “and as I went along in my career, I had an itch to open a photo gallery.” So in September, DiScalfani teamed up with his friend Bruce Kramer, a Los Angeles-based photo agent, and began renovating the Bond Street space into what they claim is the only photo-specific gallery in the borough.

The duo have four shows planned already, but the gallery’s debut will be “Coney Island of the Heart,” a collection of Coney Island photos taken between 1946 and 2006, by artists including Harold Feinstein, whose “Blanket Toss” (1945) is pictured.

“We were discussing doing a Brooklyn-specific show, since the gallery is a first for Brooklyn,” said DiScalfani. “I think the neighborhood needs it.”

“Coney Island of the Heart” will be on display from March 27 through May 8 at Bond Street Gallery (297 Bond St. at Union Street in Carroll Gardens). For information, call (718) 858-2297 or visit www.bondstreetgallery.com.
