Come spend a relaxing spring evening at the old Childs' Restaurant on the boardwalk in Coney Island. In addition to sunset networking to the sounds and breezes of the ocean, you will have an opportunity to see the restoration and reuse of the magnificent terra cotta "palace by the sea" - the former Childs' Restaurant. The landmarked structure (2002) was designed by Hirons and Dennison and built in 1923. Although it is essentially a large masonry box, the building's ornament has a Spanish Revival influence and was specifically designed to "appear as if it washed up out of the sea". The flamboyant, polychrome terra cotta ornamentation includes Poseidon, sailing ships, sea horses, squid, crabs, lobster, too many fish to count - all dripping with seaweed. After a tour of this amazing project, enjoy some appetizers and a cash bar at the roof terrace. For those who can't wait for summer, shoes are optional on the beach.
Yasmine Elrashidy & Diane Kaese will lead the tour. Yasmine Elrashidy is currently working with Pullman SST as a Project Manager. She graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology with her Bachelors Degree in Architecture and Concrete Industry Management.
