Coney Events: A Walk Through History

Take advantage and help highlight the importance of preserving the history of Coney Island with a tour of Luna Park on its opening day and of the last remaining buildings of Coney's history. 

...for a stroll down Surf Avenue in which we will discuss Coney Island's surviving historic buildings. Unfortunately, several of these buildings are threatened with imminent demolition.  These include Henderson's Music Hall, where Harpo Marx first performed with his brothers Groucho and Gummo, and the Grashorn Building, Coney Island's oldest structure.

We will have historic pictures so we can see what the buildings once were; and a few brand-new renderings illustrating how these buildings could be creatively restored and reused.
