Rare Coney Island and Gravesend Railway Bank Note

The first railroad to reach Coney Island was actually cars pulled by horses in 1860. The terminal was at Van Sicklen, which at the time was near the beach. However, as the sandbar that protected West Brighton filled in and the beach widened, the present day location of the terminal is far inland.

A terrific find! A rare Coney Island & Gravesend Railway Bank Note. Printed by Homer Lee Bank Note Co-NY. Available Issued or Unissued.
State: New York
Years: 1890s - 1900s
