The first walking tour of Coney Island’s historic buildings was a tremendous success. We had thirty more participants than the twenty we expected.
Several people, at the walk and by email, strongly encouraged us to do these historic tours on a regular basis. We had expected this to be a one time thing to celebrate the opening of Luna Park. But given the level of interest, we’re hoping to organize a tour every few weeks — provided, of course, that Thor Equities has not torn down the historic buildings that we’re there to see. If you could not join us the first time around, we hope that you’ll join us next time!
If you missed this one, you can download the informative brochure we provided to tour-goers:
Also, here’s a short clip of one of the tours, led by Save Coney Island spokesperson Juan Rivero. Many thanks to the tour attendee who was kind enough to film and post this quick taste of the experience!
