William F. Mangels: Amusing the Masses on Coney Island


I’m not sure I’d trust any amusement park ride designed by somebody named “Mangels”, but apparently millions did, and got their money’s worth.Today Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn opens an exhibition on Mangels (who is interred there) and all his crazy creations. For info, directions, etc go here. 

September 7 – October 26th
In Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel
12:00PM to 6:00PM every day
