The Coney Island History Project just started a new Flickr Group and it's up and running to show the world that Coney Island is not closed but very open! So if you got awesome pictures of what's going to be alive and kicking for summer 2009, you can submit them now!
The Coney Island History Project, founded in 2004, is a not-for-profit organization that aims to increase awareness of Coney Island's legendary and colorful past and to encourage appreciation of the Coney Island neighborhood of today. Now that the History Project's flickr photostream is established, we're ready and eager to start a few groups. This group is intended to help publicize to the world the fact that Coney Island is alive and kicking and welcomes visitors in 2009!
We are interested in the best of the best images from recent years of attractions that will *definitely* be here and open for business in 2009. Once the 2009 season gets underway and you have new photos, you can start adding images from this year as well. Photos of residents and visitors enjoying what Coney Island has to offer are also welcome. Everything from the landmark Cyclone, Wonder Wheel and Parachute Jump to the independently owned rides and attractions to the beach and the Boardwalk. If you are uncertain whether a particular ride, food stand or other attraction will be open, we'll try to find out.
