Brought to you by Coney Island History Project
Take a stroll through Coney Island's amusement district--past, present and future--with the Coney Island History Project!
Our unique walking tours are based on History Project Director Charles Denson's award-winning book "Coney Island: Lost and Found," the interviews from CIHP's Oral History Archive, and other primary sources.
Walking tours are led by historian Charles Denson or poet/teaching artist Amanda Deutch, who have over 100 years of family history in Coney Island! All tours begin with a private visit to the History Project's expanded 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 tour includes a talk on the exhibits and objects on display.
Spring Walking Tours: From April 14 through May 20, Coney Island History Project Walking Tours are offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 pm on by advance reservation.
Summer Walking Tours: From Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, when our exhibit center is open for the season, tours begin on weekends at 12:15 pm.
Throughout the year, individuals and groups may schedule a private visit to the History Project exhibit center and walking tour on a weekend or weekday.
