Coney Island USA
Coney Island USA exists to defend the honor of American popular culture through innovative exhibitions and performances. Presenting and producing exciting new works, our approach is rooted in mass culture and the traditions of P.T. Barnum, dime museums, burlesque, circus sideshows, vaudeville, and Coney Island itself. Preserving and championing a set of uniquely American visual and performing art forms, we seek to create an international forum for cultural preservation and discourse, and where Coney Island represents these impulses, we strive to make it once again a center for live art and entrepreneurial spirit.
Coney Island USA operates a multi-arts center in a landmark building in the heart of Coney Island. We produce and present programming in three unique venues: the Coney Island Museum, Sideshows by the Seashore and the Shooting Gallery/Arts Annex. Serving both New York City and an international community that includes visitors to Coney Island and enthusiasts of various cultural forms, our signature activities include the Mermaid Parade, the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, the Coney Island Museum, Coney Island Film Festival and new theatrical work.
La Tombola Restaurant is located within the Childs Building, a NYC designated Landmark originally commissioned for the Childs Restaurant chain in 1923. The design – a grand juxtaposition of Spanish Colonial style and nautically-themed motifs – was heralded for its clean, open layout and stunning ocean views. After nearly a century of various tenants, periods of dormancy, and weather damage, the Childs Building was painstakingly restored in 2017 to its former glory.
