Since 1970, when world-renowned photographer Harvey Stein first turned his discerning eye toward Coney Island, his love affair with this New York beachfront amusement park began to grow. Over 200 compelling black and white photos tell the tale of his 40-year romance with this iconic locale. Entering Coney Island through his lens is like stepping into another culture, capturing the lives and times of those who work and play there. There is a sense of adventure, a thrilling escape from daily worries, and much pleasure, whether riding the jarring Cyclone roller coaster, walking the boardwalk, viewing the Mermaid Parade, or sunbathing on the beach. Coney Island, America's first amusement park, is celebrated worldwide. It is a fantasyland of the past with an irrepressible optimism about its future.

Every detail in the design and production of this beautiful hardbound book was supervised by the photographer and produced to exacting standards. The photographs were printed in Asia on heavy 180 gsm paper, using two black inks and the advanced stochastic printing process (which randomly places the ink dots to obtain an image that is closer to continuous tone than conventional halftone processes). This gives exceptional fidelity to the original prints. Complete with a sturdy dust jacket and custom end sheets.
