What you'll learn in this history lesson:

The history of Coney Island is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. From prostitutes living in a giant tin elephant, to the invention of the hot dog, to a ride that’s so scary it actually made its riders pee themselves, and we’ll tell you all about it! 

Join New York Local Tours as we explore the engaging history of Coney Island’s amusement zone: a story of crime, passion and fire that will change the way you see the “People’s Playground” forever.

So, come on down to New York City’s most famous beach where millions of people used to escape the summer heat. On this tour we’ll explore the amusement area of Coney Island: from the time of Sodom by the Sea, to the Nickel Empire, to the men and women working today to preserve Coney’s magical history.

This walk meets at Grimaldi's (1215 Surf Ave) in Coney Island. A reminder will be sent the day before the tour.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
