(Coney Island in the 1940’s)

I couldn’t find any footage from the Ric Burns documentary on Coney Island(1991). So instead I decided to put up a few related clips I found on YouTube.

But if you have a chance, check out that film. I absolutely loved it. Al Lewis, Grandpa from The Munster’s, makes an appearance. It’s worth it just for the avant-garde audio. Right now you can buy a copy on for about $10 +S/H.

These are two of my previous posts about Ric Burns’ masterpiece, New York: A Documentary Film:

(“Fatty” in Coney Island – 1917)

The above is a clip from a comedy starring Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle and Buster Keaton. It has some great footage of Luna Park.
