A space of musings, past and current as well as the future of amusements in the legendary Coney Island and Beyond!
Here comes a new Coney Island blog that shows promise. One brought to you by a seasoned carny person and writer. The author has already been one of the most active Coney lovers on the Internet on the Coney Island USA message board. And on the inside from the Coney Island History Project. She is Tricia Vita. Who was probably inspired to start her own Coney Island blog after the passing of one Coney's voices, Bob Guskind of the Gowanus Lounge. In addition...(humbly speaking) this blog has not been able to step up to the plate, as of yet. Tricia was compelled to continue speaking out and express herself about her much loved Coney Island through her own blog: "Amusing the Zillion".In here bio, Tricia writes:
Today I’m a New York-based writer who spends the summer working in Coney Island. This season you’ll find me running a game on Jones Walk, helping out at the Coney Island History Project’s exhibition center under the Cyclone, or having a beer at Ruby’s or Cha Cha’s.Good luck Tricia on your new Coney blog, though you probably won't be needing it much because you already have all the ingredients to offer a wonderful place about Coney Island and the amusement world to the community.
I’m a contributing editor of Games: The Magazine for Creative Minds at Play. My articles about Coney Island have appeared in Islands, Preservation and Metropolis, among others. I’ve also written for amusement industry trade publications Amusement Business and IAAPA Funworld.
