Beautiful Photos Of Coney Island In The 1960s

When many people hear the name Coney Island they think of beachside fun, amusement park rides and sideshow acts, but personally the Warriors always seems to spring to mind, and then the whole place seems somehow terrifying.

Truth is, Coney Island is both entertaining and frightening, charming and creepy in a uniquely Coney way, and back in the day it was the go-to destination for many New Yorkers looking for a mini vacay, and boy do those vintage hotspots make for great photo ops!

The photos in this particular series were taken by shutterbug Aaron Rose in the 1960s, part of an exhibition showing at the Museum of the City of New York called “In A World Of Their Own: Coney Island Photographs By Aaron Rose”.
