Virtual Lecture: Lost Amusement Parks of Long Island

Thursday September 17, 2020
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM


Nunley’s! Fairyland! Frank Buck’s Jungle Camp! Dodge City! Join local historian and author Marisa (Berman) Hollywood for a journey through the history of amusement parks across Long Island. When Long Island became a suburban paradise after World War II, ambitious entrepreneurs created dozens of amusement parks to entertain the boom of children. Beginning with an overview of amusement park history, we will then visit lost parks in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties through historic and family photos, newspaper archives, postcards, and memorabilia. Hollywood is the author of Historic Amusement Parks of Long Island (History Press, 2015), and Images of America: Nunley’s Amusement Park (Arcadia Publishing, 2013). She has worked at numerous museums and cultural institutions in the NYC area.
