Coney Island Book - Past and Present

Originally posted on the Gowanus Lounge blog where they were invited to download the book from its author - this 152-page book rummages through history and old stories about Coney Island. It is a rare glimpse into photos and a different prospective on Coney’s history.

Through his journey in the book, Author Professor Solomon meets with old timers, searches for antiques, and shares his personal accounts of his childhood memories of Coney and what he felt was a huge change for the worse as he revisited the fabled site years later.
