Library Exhibit Reveals the History of Coney Island

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — It’s not every day that a Brooklyn College alum plops four binders worth of vintage postcards on your lap, but that’s exactly what happened to Colleen Bradley-Sanders, Brooklyn College’s College Archivist. The result of this donation is the “Greetings from Coney Island: Postcards of Surf, Sand, and Steeplechase” exhibit now on display at the Brooklyn College library, which uses postcards and photographs from Coney Island to paint a vivid picture of Coney Island at the turn of the century.
