A break from the wonderful New York must be at Coney Island. Great boardwalk lovely beach with silky sand. The Frensch best fries I've ever tasted got on Toms. Good service and clean restrooms. Of course we had to try the roller coaster. A nice old wooden roller coaster "cyclone" was magical. New modern steel coaster #Thunderbolt" was just raw.... More

This place has been cleaned up! Have a Nathan's hot dog and enjoy the beach for a while. I need to go back with people who are willing to ride the rides with me; I missed out on that. The beach was clean, but I forgot how much colder the water is up north than in Florida! There is a... More

2 things I got out of this experience: 1. eat a Nathan's hotdog. 2. I can't ride twirly rides anymore. However, it was a nice break from the city. We got on the subway and took it all the way to Coney Island (easy and cheap.) If you go, make a day out of the beach and boardwalk. We weren't... More

I wish we would have gone at a better time of year because it was very rainy and foggy when we went but it was still beautiful. We walked out on the pier and along the beach. I really want to come back at a time when everything is in full swing.

Have heard about Coney Island all my life, but it has taken me 53 years to get there. The beach is very clean and the boardwalk and rides have a retro feel. But the area around the boardwalk is a bit depressed. Great for a day trip, but I did not feel comfortable straying far from the ride area. A... More

So parking is expensive And may be difficult to find. The Beach at the entrance to aquarium was nice , lifeguard on duty , Free Beach. We did not... More

Loved it there. Walked all around , There is a beautiful beach and many rides and a huge boardwalk. The rides are a bit pricey though at $10 for each ride. Definitely a great place to be on a hot day.

Skip the NJ Transit and complicated NY subway system and hit the turnpike for this national treasure and hidden gem! I've lived in New Jersey my entire life, and I've visited New York more times than I can count. I've been to nearly every major beach on the Northeast corridor, and yet I never made the short trek before. This... More

It's people watching at its best. It takes all types to make up a city like New York; and they all live in Coney Island! The games are a rip off, and rides are iconic, and the food is ok.
