Hyman Cleon supervised the construction of the Coney Island Boardwalk in 1922. Many thanks to his family for recently donating Cleon's personal photographs to the Coney Island History Project. This video highlights a selection of images from the collection.

I was and will always be proud of my Uncle Hy, my mother’s brother. He was my teacher, my inspiration.
