Now more than ever we encourage you to browse the Coney Island History Project's website, which in addition to our Oral History Archive includes Ask Mr. Coney Island, selections from our Collection, and Coney News and Hall of Fame. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to learn about Coney Island's legendary and colorful past and the Coney Island community of today.
Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Coney Island History Project has postponed walking tours, group visits to our exhibition center, events at schools and senior centers, and in-person oral history interviews until further notice. In order to maintain appropriate social distancing while continuing to engage with our community, our staff is recording oral histories from home via phone and Skype and creating virtual exhibits. Please email [email protected] for information.
We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Coney Island History Project exhibition center again soon. In the meantime, please stay safe and take care.
