Last Customer Of The Night At Coney Island

Right after my son and I ate here, we walked outside so that I could photograph the front of the restaurant at night. As I was setting my camera, an old man parked his bicycle at the bike stand on the sidewalk and headed inside. He was the last customer before they closed.

Founded in 1914, Fort Wayne's Famous Coney Island Hot Dogs is the oldest restaurant in the city. It has been in the same downtown building on Main Street since it opened 99 years ago. Very little has changed at Coney Island in that time. My grandpa used to talk about eating there with his father in the 1930s, and he said that the tables and chairs are the same ones they had back then!

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
