There were those opposed to the idea of putting premature babies on display for the purposes of entertainment and profit. Dr. Couney had his reasons though, for throughout the show’s existence, he never charged a cent to the parents of the children he treated. It was the revenue of the paying customers covering the very high operating costs. He never took a payment for his services, and he accepted children of all races, economic classes and social status. Names were always kept anonymous.

"Three nurses from the Coney Island exhibit appear here, holding six premature infants having an average weight of 2 pounds." Dr. Martin Couney - originator of Coney Island, developed an exhibit in which trained nurses cared for premature infants in incubators. Incubators were not accepted in general hospital use until the 1930s. Thousands of babies were saved through the efforts of Dr. Couney. The parents were never charged for this service.
Infant Incubators were not accepted by hospitals until the 1930's. Dr. Martin Couney invented the infant incubator and funded his endeavor by charging admission, as a sideshow. He had his attraction in Luna Park (Coney Island) from 1903 to 1943 and another in Dreamland from 1904 until the Dreamland fire in 1911. He is credited with saving 6,500 premature babies.

5 Ways to Use Coffee Grounds in Your Garden - Instead of tossing your coffee grounds, use these tips for how to use coffee grounds in your garden.1. Make a worm farm. Why on earth would you want a worm farm? Worms will turn and aerate your soil for you, making less work for you. In a bucket, add some soil, your coffee grounds, and a few worms. The worms will love it. Then, just add the mixture around your plants and the worms will do the rest. Here are tips for starting a worm garden. 2. Pump up your compost. Coffee grounds are chock full of nitrogen. This nitrogen is what your compost bin needs to be at its best. When you are done with the coffee grounds, simply pour them in and give the compost a good stir. Here are more composting tips. 3. Make pests take a hike. You can sprinkle coffee grounds around the perimeter of your garden and flowers beds so pets won’t want to cross it. Slugs, snails, and other bugs won’t want to climb over the acidic mixture and instead will head over to the neighbors house! To further reduce pests, here are ways to attract beneficial insects. 4. Make your own fertilizer. You can add ½ cup of coffee grounds per 1 gallon of water. Mix well. Allow the mixture to sit for about 24 hours and “brew.” You can then pour it directly onto the base of your plants. They will love sipping on this homemade fertilizer and it won’t pose any harm to children or plants playing in the yard. Here are more organic fertilizers. 5. Fight off fungus. Coffee grounds can help fight off various types of fungus that can grow on your plants. To enlist their help, all you need to do is sprinkle the grounds directly into your soil. As the grounds break down in the soil, they will help fight various molds and fungus colonies that could be at war against your plants. Coffee gives you a pick me up each day, now let it pick up your plants! Try some coffee grounds in your garden today and see what results you can come up with.
