Brookvid: Coney Icon Jim Prince Speaks

February 13th, 2009 · 2 Comments

This is Jim Prince whose butcher shop on Mermaid Avenue was in a slideshow we just posted. If you take the time to watch one vid today, invest it in this one. What Jimmy has to say, days before he closes his shop forever, is worth hearing. He’s been working in Coney for nearly 60 years.
