after a little searching, i found out what that coney island building was:

The former Childs Restaurant on the Boardwalk. Friezes of sailing ships and King Neptune adorn the tops of the arches; the roof is intricately decorated with carvings of fish. The graffiti seen here has recently been painted over! Child's, which used to be a bustling NYC franchise with restaurants all over, built the ornate restaurant in 1924. It served as a firebreak during the Coney Island Fire of 1932 and saved other buildings from destruction.
