Coney Island, Brooklyn, 1932

Coney Island, Brooklyn, 1932

The beach and boardwalk is crowded on this summer day in 1932.  Notice how many of the men and women strolling along the boardwalk are wearing hats and jackets, despite the warmth evidenced by other men in short-sleeved shirts and the abundance of sunbathers.  Aside from the mode of dress, Coney Island wouldn't look much different in the summer today.
