Jimmy Prince Interview

Major Prime Meat Market has been a Coney Island institution for 75 years. As anyone who has ever walked down Mermaid Avenue knows, the store's front window is a veritable museum of Coney Island memorabilia. This is thanks to Jimmy Prince, who has run the store for 58 years. A couple of girls from from the Lower East Side Girls club recently conducted an interview with him for their 'Girls On Air!' podcast site in which he talked about his feelings on the redevelopment of Coney Island. The interview is only three and half minutes long, and definitely worth checking out.
