Americana: Coney Island of the 1940's
Coney Island, "the place where merriment is king!"
Take a trip back in time 50 years before the Mermaid Parade.
See masses of old school New Yorkers beat the heat by hitting the beach.
See Side Shows! Carnies! Freaks! Thrill rides! Includes the original Coney Island Hot Dog, the Bathing Girl Review, and people getting sick on rides.
Not to mention the Tiger Rag, if 1940's Coney Island existed today an insurance agent would have a field day.
Still, 1940's Coney Island kicks Disneyland's ass any day.
