Coney Island USA’s landmarked headquarters, 1208 Surf Avenue, is celebrating its 100th birthday this fall. We’re honoring New York’s oldest home for freaks, geeks, and merfolk with a special campaign to support our Coney Island Museum. As the only accredited institution uniquely dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of Coney Island, the Museum is vital to ensuring the legacy of the People’s Playground lives on. Your gift is not only a testament to Coney Island’s amazing history, but an investment in its next 100 years. Make your gift today by texting CIMUSEUM to 71777 or online here!
