A Little Taste of Coney, Up In Connecticut
Wild Bill- the grandson of a Barnum & Bailey clown- sells items such as bobble-heads, rare records and postcards. Central to his store's display is a life-size, electronic clown from 1920s Coney Island.
Wild Bill now has a funhouse and hot dog stand in the works as well. There's no substitute for Coney, of course, but if you happen to be stranded in Connecticut (god forbid), it's nice to know that you can still enjoy some of the amenities of Coney.
