Warm up to Coney Island program
Here's a prescription for midwinter cabin fever. Take a trip to the beach.
The Roslyn Landmark Society is presenting "Swept by Ocean Breezes: A History of Coney Island," a lecture by Brooklyn historian and writer John Manbeck. The lecture will include a slideshow of Coney Island through the years, as it went from a virtually unused peninsula to a summer haven for sweltering city dwellers.
