Coney Island at night in Harold Lloyd’s Speedy (1928)

A pair of fires in 1944 damaged Luna Park, destroying much of it. It was not rebuilt and did not open for the 1945 season. After a legal battle and a third fire in 1946, the land was used for other purposes.  This film contains a lot of wonderful footage of the famous amusement park in the 1920s, with it’s rides and other attractions, which was located on Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City from 1903 - 1944.
