Like most places at Coney, the beach was important to Steeplechase.  You can see the park’s logo “The Funny Place” on the placards along the boardwalk.

The Steeplechase Pier was a docking location for steamships from New York.  The postcard on the left shows the undulating hills of the Steeplechase Ride and the second is looking south out into the Atlantic.
