“Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered…” – Coney Island part 1

Once upon a time, on a website called (something like) corbis.com, one could find scores of Weegee photos…
Now corbis.com redirects to http://www.gettyimages.com/?corbis. And one is confronted with a message:

“Corbis Images and Corbis Motion closed their doors on May 2, 2016. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We are moving the best Corbis imagery and video content to Getty Images…”

Some of these Weegee images are still available/visible, but many of the images, perhaps from ACME, are either not available or hard to find…
Below, presumably scanned from the original negatives, are eight photos made on Coney Island:
