We were so looking forward to visit this iconic place. What we found was a destination that was so filthy that clearly the once held pride has disappeared. Peak season found restaurants closed and the ummm so called famous Nathans hotdog had so much to be desired fro a quality and service perspective. Utter waste of time leaving the city... More

Coney Island is a shell of its old self with many of the old rides and attractions gone. However, their are new rides, restaurants, and attractions going in. It is still a must see experience.

Boardwalk was neat, though not that long. Beaches were ok, not great, not bad. We tried the world famous (and overpriced) Nathan's coney dog. Did not see why everyone raves about it. Also the surroundings were questionable, especially at night. Did not feel safe, despite a limited police presence. I think the last straw for me was having an adolescent... More

Visited for the first time with my family last weekend, and even though Luna Park is not a huge amusement park we had a lot of fun. There's a long line to go to the bathroom though, probably since it's both an amusement park and a beach, the beach looked ok, I really didn't go to swim, but it's just... More

I had the pleasure of going to see the fireworks on Coney Island on a Friday night in July and it was grand. There is an excitement and thrill there that makes you feel like a little kid again. Go for the fun and top it off with fireworks.

Beautifully renovated boardwalk, great beach and the unique surroundings of Luna Park. All this, plus a fantastic summer day and the proximity of the subway station made this visit a great experience. Rides in Luna Park are not cheap, but the walk on the boardwalk is absolutely free. New York Aquarium, with an entrance on the boardwalk, is still partly... More

Coney Island is not a World class attraction. But it is nice to have been there and seen this Classic Place.

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
