Many articles have come out this week noting the fiscal boom of Coney Island. But I challenge you to walk away from the boardwalk, the rides and the beach, stroll along Mermaid and Neptune down to the Sea Gate walls, talk to people and see if they agree with this optimistic economic outlook. Support our film, City Story: Voices Beyond The Boardwalk and see another side of Coney Island……the community.
From Today’s NY Daily News!!! Watch the trailer, learn more about the film and our fundraising campaign here!
CONEY ISLAND IS MORE THEN JUST AN AMUSEMENT PARK, IT IS A COMMUNITY!!

Coney Island is a place like none other, known around the world for its iconic amusements and the role its had throughout history as America’s first playground. At the same time the community that lives, works and struggles to support Coney Island’s survival has gone unknown and unseen, until now.
City Story is a feature length documentary film that explores in depth the lives of several unique characters who represent the challenges and hope for change in the Coney Island community. This is the real Coney Island that fights to survive beyond the boardwalk, in the shadow of the Wonder Wheel, when the cotton candy and hot dogs are gone. These are the untold stories, the voices too often drowned out by the screams from the Cyclone, and the bureaucracy of politics in the big city.
Our film takes you into Coney Island, past the rides and to a city that’s like no place else in the world, yet it reflects the challenges facing so many forgotten communities throughout the United States.
Thanks to everyone thus far who has followed, messaged kind words and checked out the trailer. Tell your family, friends and neighbors, go to our IndieGoGo page to learn more about the film and how you can help be a part of it.
