Today, I attended the 2008 Coney Island Hall of Fame Induction ceremony at the Coney Island History Project museum located under the ever-invigorating Cyclone roller coaster. Carol Albert accepted a plaque on behalf of Astroland Park and three post-mortem inductees were honored: Woody Guthrie, Granville T. Woods, and William Ward.
The Coney Island History Project has a great growing Oral History Archive and they invite visitors to the museum to leave 1 minute memory videos.

I ran into one of the Interpreting Brooklyn artists, playwright Michael Schwartz, and my friend Peter Kleeman, curator of the Space Age Museum.

And lucky for us, a wild coney made a rare appearance.
