SUNDAY WALKING TOURS...The Coney Island History Project is pleased to announce a series of walking tours of the historic landmarks and current attractions of the amusement district. Our tours are based on CIHP Director Charles Denson's award-winning book Coney Island: Lost and Found, the oral history interviews in our archive and other primary sources.
All tours begin at the History Project's new exhibition center under the Wonder Wheel's iconic entrance sign on Denos D. Vourderis Place (West 12th Street), just a few steps off the Boardwalk. The 1-1/2 hour tours include a talk on the Dreamland Fire Centennial exhibit, are approximately one mile in length and wheelchair accessible. Tickets are $20.
Tours are currently offered on Sundays at 12:15 pm from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend as well as to groups by advance reservation. Online purchase of tickets through our event reservation website is recommended since the walking tours are limited to 10-12 people. If a tour has not sold out, the remaining tickets will be available for cash purchase on the day of the tour when the History Project opens at 12 noon.
