With this lavishly illustrated map in hand, anyone can take a self-guided tour of the historical and present-day attractions of Coney Island, the "Playground of the World." Conceived and written by "Coney-ologist" Charles Denson, the guide leads users on a tour that can be taken at any time of the year, and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in New York City history.
Descriptions of over 40 landmarks and attractions are accompanied by 35 color photographs and historical images. Two maps, in full color, pinpoint all of the locations. A brief essay on Coney Island history gives tour-goers indispensable background information.
Step right up for a tour of Coney Island's neighborhoods and amusement area. Visit the sites of famous Mafia hits. Sample a hot dog at Nathan's Famous. Walk along the Bowery, where young Archie Leach (better known as Cary Grant) once carried a sandwich board advertising Steeplechase Park. Commune with a dolphin at the N.Y. Aquarium. "Freak out" at Sideshows by the Seashore's freak show. Ponder Coney's unique heritage at the Coney Island Museum. Take a white-knuckle ride on the Cyclone roller coaster. Or just sit back in your armchair and reminisce about good times had on the beach and Boardwalk.
The only comprehensive and accurate guide to Coney Island currently available, the Coney Island Walking Tour is ideal for tourists, historians, and amusement park enthusiasts, as well as anyone who has spent a day at Coney Island.
Printed on heavy stock with a varnished coating, the map-fold guide opens to 11 by 17 inches. When folded, it fits into a 4-by-9-inch archival plastic sleeve.
