Our Sweet Back Story
John Dorman, Coney Island's beloved candy man, was forced out of his sweet seaside stand, Philip's Candy Shop, in 2001 to make way for construction of the Stillwell Avenue subway station. The institution opened on the boardwalk in 1916, moving to the storefront in the '30s. Dorman reopened in 2002 on Staten Island.
