Description

The Coney Island History Project's free public exhibition center has moved to a new location at the entrance to Deno's Wonder Wheel  Park. We're on West 12th Street, just off the Boardwalk, under the iconic Wonder Wheel sign.  View historic artifacts, photographs, maps, ephemera, folk art treasures and films of Coney Island's colorful past. Take a souvenir photo with our popular Steeplechase horse from the legendary ride that gave Steeplechase Park its name and a rare "Fairy Whip" car. Visitors can make an appointment to record their memories of Coney Island for our Oral History Archive.

Throughout the year, visitors are invited to download the History Project's FREE audio/video walking tour of "Coney Island's Amusement Area--Past & Present" and explore the neighborhood. Narrated by historian Charles Denson, the Coney Island History Project's tours make the People's Playground accessible to visitors and armchair travelers 365 days a year. The tour is downloadable to iPods and other portable players and may be listened to live via iPhone.
