    This is an unfortunate misconception, that PP was based on a specific place. like Luna or Coney. It is a similar misconception to the belief some pass around about Main Street USA being a copy of Marcelline. PP is a GENERIC representation of beach boardwalks from a general era of American history. Just as MSUSA is a generic homage to small town main streets of a certain historical era, so PP is a homage to those places. Is there some Luna and Coney Is. there? Sure, undoubtedly, but it is not "modeled after" any specific place.
