A new exhibit at the Coney Island History Project opens on Saturday, May 26th, looking at the history of Coney Island Creek, arguably the first attraction in Coney Island. “Coney Island Creek and the Natural World” will have also some rare treasures on display, including Coney’s “first admission ticket,” the wooden 1823 sign from the Creek’s Shell Road toll house advertising rates for horse and rider and coaches, Coney Island’s only original Steeplechase horse, an original medallion from the Child’s Restaurant, and more!
