Did You Know?

In the weekly Brooklyn Daily Eagle column, 'From The Brooklyn Aerie, David Ansel Weiss provides tidbits of 'trivia & observations.' In his most recent column, Weiss included these interesting details about the historic ethnic landscape of Coney Island: "In the 1940s when you went to Coney Island you usually went to that part of the beach where you fit in ethnically. Thus, if you were Jewish, you probably went between 27th St. and 36th St., and if Italian, near Stillwell Avenue."
