Coney Island Baby By Larry Racioppo:
"A Brooklyn native, Larry Racioppo has photographed the borough over the course of several decades. He has documented many of its communities and carefully recorded their ups and downs. Many of his Coney Island photographs provide vibrant historical record of the years just before the recent resurgence "America's Playground." A must see for any Coney enthusiast."
