ABOUT THE TOUR
The history of Coney Island is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. On this tour, you will discover a giant elephant-shaped hotel, hear about the invention of the hot dog, and even see a ride that was so scary it made its riders pee themselves! We’ll 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 escape the summer heat. The tour meets at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria (1215 Surf Avenue) in Coney Island.
