Lost Amusement Parks of New York City - Beyond Coney Island
Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm
Coney Island is an iconic symbol of the turn-of-the-century New York, but many other amusement parks thrilled the residents of the five boroughs. Each park was influenced by the culture and eclectic tastes of its owners and patrons - from the wooden coasters at Staten Island's Midland Beach to beer gardens on the Queens North Beach and fireworks blasting from the Bronx Starlight Park. Authors and educators Barbara and Wesley Gottlock will help us discover the thrills of the past from the lost amusement parks of New York City.
