I sometimes would ride around with a camera. This one was taken from the top of the garage at Kings Plaza in 1975.

This one was taken near Cadman Plaza in 1975 when I was back in Brooklyn for a visit and was riding with a friend.

The Carousel on Surf Avenue brings back very fond memories of when I was growing up in Brooklyn. To be taken to Coney Island was a special treat, BUT to go on the Carousell was even more special. To catch the 'gold ring' was a thrill!

The one and only Parachute Jump, Coney Island's contribution to the Wonders of the Modern World. Who needed The Eiffel Tower? This picture was taken sometime in the late forties.

--Anonymous


This was taken in the late 1940s or early 1950s facing toward Manhattan. It still is a nice walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, which is why so many people have bought it.

McGinnis' Bar on Emmons Avenue, one block east of Ocean Avenue. Back in the 40's.

--Steve Turoff


The Cyclone at Coney Island is in the background. Taken in 1914.
Carol adds: The roller coaster in this picture could not be the Cyclone, which opened in 1928. Besides, the first hill will tell you it's not the Cyclone: it's not nearly steep enough.

--Bill Allison


Deli on Voorhies Avenue and East 24th Street, taken in the 40's. Last I remember it was called "Bud Rich Deli"

--Steve Turoff


This was the corner drug store on Voorhies Avenue and East 24th Street. This photo was taken in the 40's.

--Steve Turoff


I took this in the late 1940s. The fishing boats in Sheepshead Bay were a favorite place to buy fish. They would come in with their freshly caught fish and many of the fishermen sold their excess at a cheaper price.
