Inside Playland

As The Gowanus Lounge so accurately puts it, "Of all the structures in Coney Island, one of the most interesting ones to many visitors is the ruined Playland arcade." Indeed, after a long shot down the deserted winter boardwalk, a shot of Playland's facade from across the litter strewn (one time) Thunderbolt lot is probably the most common picture taken by those who want to eloquently (and obviously) capture the current state of Coney. Now, however, Coney Island USA message board user POCI (who worked at Playland, in their student days), has posted some photographs of the inside of Playland. POCI comments, "No[t] exactly the way it was when I was making change for skeeball!"
