Coney On Memorial Day Weekend: Luna Park Revisited

Going to Coney on Memorial Day weekend? Drop by the Coney Island History Project exhibition center for the opening of their 2010 season and the featured exhibit "Luna Park Revisited" curated by historian Charles Denson.

The exhibit details the "Electric Eden's" history, from opening day in 1903 to the dramatic fire that destroyed it forty years later. Rare archival photos, family snapshots, souvenir postcards and ephemera from Luna Park will be on display.

The History Project's free public exhibition center under the Cyclone Roller Coaster will be open from 1-6 p.m. on Saturday, May 29 through Monday, May 31, and subsequent weekends through Labor Day.
