Did you know the 1920s Coney Island headquarters of the old Brooklyn Union Gas Company was demolished this past fall to make way for a storage facility? Find out what’s new, what’s old and what’s gone in Coney Island at a weekend history tour by Coney Island History Project.
Local historian Charles Denson, director of CIHP, or poet and artist Amanda Deutch give tours every weekend afternoon. The tours begin under the Wonder Wheel at the CIHP exhibition center, just off the boardwalk. Tickets for the tours must be bought a day in advance on Eventbrite and cost $20.
