Coney Island Biggest Fire Disaster

This is a panoramic view of the ruins of the burned district. After Dreamland burned in the great fire of 1911, it was never rebuilt.

Most of Steeple Chase burned, but Mr. Tylton was in the bank the next day to secure a loan for rebuilding. What started the fire at Coney Island? A cigarette thrown into a trash bin.
