The Brooklyn Museum Gets With The Times

Over the past few months, Patrick Anselm has been writing great series of posts on the history of Coney Island for The Brooklyn Museum's blog, as a supplement to the Museum's ongoing 'Goodbye Coney Island' photography exhibit. The series follows Coney's history and development chronological, starting all the way back in 1829.

It is often easy to lose perspective of how the issues we face today fit into a greater historical context. Reading Anselm's most recent post along with his previous posts really helps to restore this context.
