  (Luna Park – sign test) I’m very excited about this little park. I’d love to see Coney Island become a hot spot once again. This is a start in the right direction. Condos were the alternative. One of my earliest memories as a kid of Coney Island is driving along Surf Ave and checking out the […]

Miller. Then I’d zip over to Coney Island, ride the Steeplechase, and afterwards, file into the Blowhole Theater for an electric jolt by a clown and a […]

(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 […]
