Whether you’ve attended our Siren Music Festival, seen Nathan’s hot-dog-eating contest, or frolicked in the sand, everyone has a Coney Island story, and if they don’t, they should. The Coney Island History Project gathers your best stories to be saved in their archives and also be put on display. This weekend’s theme is Thrills & Chills, which obviously features the best moments on Coney Islands rides, funhouses, arcades, and freak shows. All the stories, images, and memorabilia were gathered throughout the summer from random passers-by who wanted to commemorate their favorite “Thrills & Chills” Coney Island Story via interview with historian Charles Denson.
