Summary, etc.:
"Everything about Coney Island seems to carry a certain fascinating charm-- from how it came to be called Coney Island to the thrills it had to offer. Some believe that the name Coney Island originated from Dutch names like "Konjin kok" which later evolved to Coney. Others feel the conical shaped sand bars that form along the shoreline inspired sailors to call it Coney Island. This DVD provides a glimpse of what it was like to be on the famous island in the 50s. it also enables you to have a close look at the magnificent natural wonder-- the Niagara Falls and see what the famous Manhattan waterfront looked like in the early part of the 20th century."--Container.
