At the turn of the twentieth century, Rochester's Ontario Beach Park, with its amusement park and sandy beach, was known as "the Coney Island of Central New York." Many a hot summer day found Rochesterians on the train, bound for the fun and relaxation of the area's coastline. Today, only an historic Dentzel carousel remains in operation, but the wide sandy beach remains open for the public.
