Coney Island's Dreamland--destroyed by fire in 1911, Metropolitan Opera House--demolished in 1967, Moondance Diner--moved to Wyoming in 2007. A celebration of the cherished parts of New York that are no longer. The New York landmarks remembered here include Coney Island's "Elephant Colossus," an elephant-shaped hotel rumored to be a brothel and destroyed by fire in 1896; the Manhattan Beach Hotel; South Street Seaport; Stanford White's Madison Square Garden; the Vanderbilt, Tiffany, and Astor mansions; Central Park's elevated railway; the first Waldorf Astoria Hotel; the 1939 World's Fair site; Manhattan Train Terminal on Brooklyn Brid≥ Ebbet's Field--home of the Brooklyn Dodgers; and the Polo Grounds--home of the NY Giants baseball team. This collection celebrates old theaters and hotels that have burned or been razed, vanished ferry buildings, removed-from-service trolley cars, classic art deco diners, and the demolition that sparked a strong preservation movement in the city: Pennsylvania Station.
