This is nice news.  The Vidbel Old Tyme Circus, a one-ring family circus, will be at Coney Island for the summer (Amusing the Zillion).  I grew up going to one-ring circuses, & have seen them in England, France, the U.S., & even (weirdly enough) in Ruhengeri, Rwanda.  I have never had any desire to go to Ringling Brothers B & B, & the Cirque du Soleil holds no interest for me at all, but I know I'll have to go & check out the Vidbel guys.

Forgotten New York visits Union Street, from the Gowanus to PPW.
