What you'll learn in this history lesson:

The history of Coney Island is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. From prostitutes living in a giant tin elephant, to the invention of the hot dog, to a ride that’s so scary it actually made its riders pee themselves, and we’ll tell you all about it! 

Join New York Local Tours as we explore the engaging history of Coney Island’s amusement zone: a story of crime, passion and fire that will change the way you see the “People’s Playground” forever.

So, come on down to New York City’s most famous beach where millions of people used to escape the summer heat. On this tour we’ll explore the amusement area of Coney Island: from the time of Sodom by the Sea, to the Nickel Empire, to the men and women working today to preserve Coney’s magical history.

This walk meets at Grimaldi's (1215 Surf Ave) in Coney Island. A reminder will be sent the day before the tour. 
If you're looking for a refund, you need to back out of the class a week before it starts. We know it's draconian, but since we're not charging a million bucks, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings. Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around your friends and see if anyone would take your spot, then just get money from them! We also can't switch you between class sessions or give any sort of refund after the class happens.
