  1. I totally enjoyed reading this. I grew up in Coney Island from the “50”s to the late “60”s I sure do miss it and try to read everything I can find about it. Thank you. I hope I can find and read part 2.


    Good but incomplete. Forgot to mention the “Bobsled” A ride that mimicked a real bobsled.( It was on wheels) located next to the Tornado. Also “Feltman”s”, with it’s singing waiters { I think it was Eddie Canter and Cary Grant, among others). Also the Mardi gras parades in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s.I know you can’t fit it all, but I thought these were important omissions to a true history of Coney Island. Oh and Luna Park limped into 1946 when a second fire put a final end to it
