Film and Talk: Coney Island Creek After Sandy

On October 29, the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the Coney Island History Project presents:  "Coney Island Creek After Sandy: Planning for the Future."

Will the Creek be a community asset or a liability? A talk and film presentation by Charles Denson, director of the Coney Island History Project, will be held at the Coney Island Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library at 6pm. The Wednesday evening event is free and open to the public. The Coney Island Library is located at 1901 Mermaid Avenue at the corner of West 19th Street.

Charles Denson, a Coney Island native, has been documenting the Creek for over 40 years and is working on a book and film about the waterway. In 2013 Denson received the Herman Melville Award from the New York State Marine Education Association.
