Coney Island's own Todd Robbins publishes "The Modern Con Man: How to Get Something for Nothing", a stoy of perhaps the ballsiest con man in the history of New York. Grifting his way by selling New York City landmarks to gullable suckers. Pubished by Bloomsbury this book is a, "tongue-in-cheek lifestyle book (as well as including a bunch of true stories and history, and yes, even a mention of Coney Island in its "Continental Grift" section" says co-writer Gadi Harel.
The book excerpt by the New York Post from last November can be read here. The book has a blog as well: The Modern Con Man - a blog, a book, a DVD series.
