Coney History - Read a brief history of Coney Island, from it's beginnings in the late 1800's to the the great fire. For awhile it became a sedate spa for the rich who summered there in big wooden hotels. Day and night the sands were crowded with bathers, and the noise of the great amusement park never seemed to cease.
Coney Postcards - Lots of old picture postcards of Luna Park and Dreamland. Steeplechase Park and history. It amazes me when I see pictures of the way it use to be. Coney Island's history of amusing parks start in 1897 by a man named George C. Tylton
