CONEY ISLAND - A vintage World War II-era shooting gallery has been restored in Coney Island.

The gallery was initially hidden behind another one that was destroyed after Superstorm Sandy.

Coney Island USA, a group that restores and preserves area history, brought the attraction back to life. It is now a part of an interactive exhibit at the Coney Island Museum.

The shooting gallery is a World War II-inspired contraption that features tanks, soldiers and airplanes. The device tests the aim of shooters as the targets move quickly around the display.
