Coney Island Custard Shoppe (Removed)
Streetsboro, OH

Off Route 14 in Streetsboro, Ohio is Custard's Coney Island Shoppe. Plenty of chain stores, condos, and restaurants surround this happy icon of the past. Great malts and other treats can be enjoyed here throughout the summer season.


UPDATE 05/05 : The owner of the Coney Island Custard Shoppe has sold the business and a chain ice cream store is taking its place. And yes, the sign has been taken down. Word on the street is that the City of Streetsboro wanted the sign removed for some reason. A local historical society (Kent) says the sign is too big to save for their purposes. For now, the sign sits behind the building, laying flat. The neon hasn't worked in years, but the sign was a pleasant reminder of a simpler time. This sign may end up on eBay. Many thanks to Mark Hackett for update. 05-05
