New Hotel at Coney Island

Good news, for a change.

NEW HOTEL AT CONEY ISLAND.--The framework and stock for a large hotel at Coney Island, to be erected near the steamboat landing, is about prepared, and will be taken to the ground in the course of a few days, and the house immediately put up.

--Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Monday, June 22, 1846

I sure don't know enough to know what hotel it is. Gravesend: The Home of Coney Island says John Wyckoff built Coney Island's second hotel and Charles Denson's "Coney Island Lost and Found" mentions the Wyckoff Hotel too, so that seems plausible.
