Here’s another unfortunate casualty to Hurricane Sandy: signage outside the historic, landmarked Shore Theater in Coney Island. Coneyislandfun tweets, “Damage is extensive and heartbreaking but our focus now is on public safety,” although it’s not clear if they’re talking about the entire neighborhood or the theater itself. (Does anyone know if the building sustained interior damage as well?)

The street was blocked off with caution tape in case it fell.” Here are interior shots of the theater taken this year.
