Did you see The Blacklist tonight? Scenes from next Monday's ep showed a glimpse of Red and his adversary on the Coney Island Boardwalk! Among the other Coney locations where James Spader and crew filmed last month was this 1940's Mangels shooting gallery from Wonder Wheel Park restored by Coney Island USA and operating on Surf Ave. Photo by Norman Blake
