Hazleton's Coney Island

Coney Island Restaurant
North Wyoming Street - Hazleton, PA
This restaurant was a fixture in downtown Hazleton for over 70 years.  It opened in 1922 and was well known and loved throughout the area for generations.  I remember coming here with my grandmother for hot dogs and rice pudding when I was a kid.  It sadly closed in 1995, but it is fondly remembered in the area.

Here are some of the vintage newspaper ads I've found from the 60's, 70's and 80's from this lost Hazleton treasure.
