Another Coney Island chapter to close

Tomorrow, November the 15th, 8 business tenants have to leave the boardwalk in Coney Island. They include the 76 year old Ruby’s Bar and Grill, as well as the world famous Shoot the Freak. You canĀ read and listen to the story on NPR here. Jim Shanon (pictured above) is quoted:

“I’ve seen people come and go, good friends and everything. Be like a sin to lose it,” he says. “I mean, you give this place up, where the people going to go for the summer? Ruby’s is gone; who the hell wants to go to Coney Island?”
