The Brooklyn Museum's Guide To Amusement Parks
The Brooklyn Museum continues to provide great online content about Coney Island, in supplement to their ongoing 'Goodbye Coney Island' photography exhibit.
Patrick Anselm's last posting on Coney Island history for the Brooklyn Museums blog followed the entertainment history of Coney from 1829 up through 1896. In his new posting, Steeplechase, Luna Park, and Dreamland, Anselm picks up where he left off, starting with the creation of Steeplechase park by George Tilyou in 1897.
