Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
These are amazing photos - I am really interested in the history of Coney Island and Rockaway Beach so I am going to Stumble this one! My grandmother went to RB as a child in the 1890s and I have a lovely picture of her done at a photographer's (probably on the midway) with beachy backdrop and sand strewn on the floor.
The Arvern looks like an amazing building.
google the Arvern and you come with this great article that i sent to zach about the social life of the day. evidently they hosted a lot of different parties.
Loved this blog submission... okay, I actually love them all. I agree about the Arvern, it was spectacular. I will certainly "google it". Thanks for sharing!
