Riegelmann Boardwalk, Coney Island
Riegelmann Boardwalk, Coney Island
Coney Island, Brooklyn Coney Island, originally separated from Brooklyn by Coney Island Creek, was the site of the landing of Henry Hudson's ship Half Moon in 1609. The name Coney appears to derive from the Dutch word konijn, or rabbits, which ran wild and were found in great abundance on the island. The area first achieved popularity as a rustic seaside resort after the construction, in 1824, of a shell road from Gravesend, Brooklyn and the adjacent Coney Island House Hotel, on the western part of the island. Other establishments followed, but the real growth of the resort came about after the Civil War when five railroads were constructed connecting the island with the rest of Brooklyn. Beginning in the 1870s and 80s many innovations increased the popularity of Coney Island, including mechanical amusements such as carousels and roller coasters, hot dogs, and mixed public bathing. On the western end of the island were gambling dens, houses of prostitution, and race tracks, which thrived until anti-gambling legislation was passed in New York in 1909. Wealthy clientele were lured to the elegant resorts and hotels on Coney’s eastern end, in Manhattan Beach and Brighton Beach, with public bathing and numerous other amusements located between them. The Ferris Wheel, introduced at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, was brought here after that fair closed. In order to attract families and limit alcohol consumption, George C. Tilyou created Steeplechase Park in 1897, grouping a number of mechanical rides, including the famous Steeplechase Race, behind a fence and charging an admission fee. It was so successful that Luna Park (1903) and Dreamland (1904) soon followed, with more rides, entertainments, and a fantasy world of exotic architecture, bright lights, and unusual sights. Nearby, along Surf Avenue and the Bowery, there were numerous small stands for rides, shooting galleries, arcades, and saloons, as well as low-priced restaurants to feed the hungry crowds. By 1900, Sunday crowds reached more than 500,000 and lines for the various amusements often lasted well into the night. The subways reached the area in 1920, bringing New Yorkers from all parts of the city to the beach for only five cents. After this, approximately one million visitors came to Coney Island each summer day. Something had to be done to alleviate congestion and to allow for better fire-fighting access to battle the huge conflagrations which periodically decimated the area. A boardwalk was constructed along the beach in 1923, stretching four miles from Brighton Beach to Sea Gate and a short time later Surf Avenue and the Bowery were widened, destroying many smaller buildings in the process. Coney Island has played a part in the history of New York since the first days of European exploration, when Henry Hudson docked his ship, the Half Moon, off its coast in 1609. Lady Deborah Moody and forty followers settled Gravesend, the area north of Coney Island, in 1643; she bought the island itself from the Canarsie Indians in 1654. Not until 1824 did the Gravesend and Coney Island Road and Bridge Company build a shell road from the thriving center of Gravesend to what is now West 8th Street on the island. Along with the commencement of steamer ship service from New York in 1847, this improved access allowed about a half dozen small hotels to spring up by the 1860s. During this period many famous Americans rusticated there: Washington Irving, Herman Melville, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and Walt Whitman. But the nature of vacationing at Coney Island changed quickly during the 1870s, when several railroad companies began service from Brooklyn; the completion of F.L. Olmsted's Ocean Parkway, a designated New York City Scenic Landmark, also provided a comfortable route for carriages. Grand hotels and restaurants accommodated the mostly well-to-do visitors, who came to enjoy not only the ocean and cool sea breezes but also the amusements which were transforming Coney into the most famous family park among its American counterparts. A festive atmosphere was ensured by the transferral to Coney Island of structures from the dismantled Centennial Exposition which had been held in Philadelphia in 1876. Coney Island developed into "America's first and probably still most symbolic commitment to mechanized leisure.The island increasingly became the site for technologically advanced structures such as the balloon hangar, elephant-shaped hotel and observatory (built in 1882, it became an unofficial symbol of American amusement parks), and the Iron Pier (1878) which housed many amusements. Mechanically-driven rides were pioneered at Coney,, one example being LaMarcus A. Thompson's Switchback Railway (1884), a precursor of the roller coaster. Most of these rides succeeded because they combined socially acceptable thrills with undertones of sexual intimacy. Indeed, Coney Island, which earned the sobriquet "Sodom by th
