Greetings From Coney Island Walking Tour

The history of Coney Island is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. From prostitutes living in a giant tin elephant, to the invention of the hot dog, to a ride that’s so scary it actually made its riders pee themselves, and we’ll tell you all about it! Join New York Local Tours as we explore the engaging history of Coney Island’s amusement zone: a story of crime, passion and fire that will change the way you see the “People’s Playground” forever.

So, come on down to New York City’s most famous beach where millions of people used to escape the summer heat. On this tour we’ll explore the amusement area of Coney Island: from the time of Sodom by the Sea, to the Nickel Empire, to the men and women working today to preserve Coney’s magical history.

This walk meets at Grimaldi’s (1215 Surf Ave) in Coney Island. A reminder will be sent the day before the tour.
