On Small Business Saturday take a moment and listen to the Coney Island History Project's oral histories of small business owners on Mermaid Avenue and #ShopSmall. Pictured here are Ho Cheung Li of J & R Pharmacy, Sabino Eugenio and Magda Perez of Mermaid Prime Meats, Steven Feinstein of the 100-year-old Wilensky Hardware, and Derrick Batts of Coney Island Hook & Bait Shop on West 24th St off Mermaid. J & R Pharmacy and Wilensky Hardware are also featured in Episode 4 of our new podcast, which tells the stories of Mermaid Avenue’s mom and pop businesses founded by immigrants, past and present.
