Coney Island History Project

Coney Island History Project Come visit us at the Wonder Wheel in 2011! Visitors to our blog "Ask Mr. Coney Island" can ask questions about the area's past, present, and future.

The Coney Island History Project, founded in 2004, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that aims to increase awareness of Coney Island's legendary and colorful past and to encourage appreciation of the Coney Island neighborhood of today. For information about programs and activities, or to become a member or volunteer email [email protected]

In 2011, the History Project moved t

o a new exhibition center on W 12th Street in the heart of Deno's Wonder Wheel Park. Since the Coney Island History Project's inception in 2004 with a portable recording booth on the Boardwalk, followed by the opening of the Coney Island Hall of Fame in 2005 and the inaugural season of our exhibition center under the Cyclone in 2007, we have proudly offered "Free Admission for One and All!" at our exhibits and events. We are grateful to the Vourderis family for inviting us to set up history exhibits in locations around their park, and to the Albert family for their ongoing support as the History Project continues its mission of recording oral histories with people who lived, worked, and played in Coney Island. Open from 1pm-7pm on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day, and by appointment, the center presents a series of exhibits, events and performances, and displays historic artifacts from Coney Island's colorful past. The Coney Island History Project's award-winning website features a free downloadable audio tour of Coney Island, an Oral History Audio Archive and a searchable online archive containing more than 1,000 images and items from our collection. If you would like to receive a monthly e-newsletter "What's New in Coney?" featuring news and upcoming events in Coney Island please sign up on our website http://www.coneyislandhistory.org

Emphasizing community involvement, the Coney Island History Project teaches young people the techniques of oral history and develops programs in conjunction with local schools, museums, and other organizations. The History Project’s executive director Charles Denson is a Coney Island native, a noted historian, and the author of the award-winning Coney Island: Lost and Found & Wild Ride: A Coney Island Roller Coaster Family.

: Steeplechase closing ceremony as the park closed forever on September 20, 1964. From Charles Denson's Coney Island: Lost and Found: "The park's bells were slowly tolled once for every year of operation. The sound system played "There's No Business Like Show Business" and then "Auld Lang Syne." Thousands of lights were switched off slowly, row after row, on each toll of the bell. As it turned out, the park went dark for the last time." Photo courtesy of Dan Pisark.

We are saddened by the horrific attack on author Salman Rushdie and wish him a speedy recovery. Rushdie is a big fan of Coney Island. When he visited in 2009 with CIHP board member Suketu Mehta, he spent the morning at the History Project before riding the Cyclone, strolling the Boardwalk, and having a beer at Ruby's Bar. It was a memorable visit. The attack on Rushdie is an attack on freedom of expression for all writers. We hope to see more of his insightful books, essays, and opinions in the future.

Memories span the 1920s, when beach goers were fined as much $5 each - the equivalent of $75 today - for walking on the boardwalk in bathing suits, to the 1990s, when “under the boardwalk” was filled in with sand and a way of life changed forever. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1565375/8582175.

Hello All, I am looking for any information/accounts/pictures regarding the house fire at 2971 W. 25th St. in Coney Island on February 9, 1954. Attached is the Brooklyn Eagle story of the incident. I remember as a child there was a photograph of the Police Officers at the scene (one being my father Ernest Bonnevier.) He recounted how they had them go back to the scene after the job to re-create the scene for the news paper. The picture doesn't seem to be from the Brooklyn Eagle was hoping someone may know of another archive or further information. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Coney Island deserves a ferry. It deserves a clean creek, too.

Does anyone have a copy of the front page of a newspaper with the story of the July 28, 1907 (not 1911) Coney Island Fire? Preferably the New York Evening Journal, but any NY paper would be fine. Thanks!
My folks were Married on May 31st 1953. They just returned from their Bermuda honeymoon when mom won this photo. It's across from the Cyclone. I think this shot with the trolly is the same location from earlier years.
Hello, can someone tell me the exact year, not around, that the Steeplechase Park Big Wheel was disassembled and sent to Seaside Heights NJ ?

Thank you, Jim

Please note that “testimony should be limited to issues of design and aesthetic merit, as that is the Public Design Commission's purview.”

Oh the good ole days of Coney Island. The smell of the Nathan's hot dogs basking in the sun. Their world famous French fries and fried clams. All the fresh corn you could eat and the ice cream was the last thing you ate before you went home. And, don't forget those head spinning rides.
