This beautiful volume of evocative and wildly colorful photos brings to life the small strip of land on New York's Atlantic coast that for over 100 years has provided thrills, amusements, and escape to untold millions--Coney Island. 100 color photos.
From the Publisher:
Referred to as the "Sodom by the Sea" by the New York Times in 1894, this most famed amusement complex was a twenty-block mecca for rollercoasters, side shows, carnival acts of all kinds, and food without end. Home of Famous Nathan's Hot Dogs, a lively boardwalk, and a white sand beach that at times was so filled you couldn't lie down, Coney Island was the summer destination for generations of city dwellers who couldn't afford the Catskills or the Hamptons.

Today, Coney Island remains a vivid living reminder of the past and still attracts sun worshipers and thrill seekers. It has been the favorite subject of photographers for decades. And all who know or ever knew it will rejoice in this book.A beautiful volume of evocative and vividly colorful photographs brings to life the small strip of land on New York's Atlantic coast, Coney Island, that for more than one hundred years has provided thrills, amusements, and escape to millions of people. Original.
