We took the subway to Coney Island while visiting New York. It was early in the season (the end of May), and workday afternoon, so the boardwalk, the beaches, nor the attractions were crowded.

Walked along the beach and Boardwalk, rode the CYCLONE, hot dogs and Nathan's . A perfect place to sit and watch the world go by, never a dull moment at Coney Island. This was one of our most treasured memories on our trip to New York.

Coney Island it the truth The rides have been updated since I’ve been there last prior to this time. I don’t normally go on the rides anymore but I love the experience of watching others have a ball. If I happen to be talked into one of the rides I usually opt for The Bumper Cars or The Hymalaya. Sometime... More

Coney Island boardwalk and beach is a great place to visit during a trip to NYC. There are carnival rides, games, funnel cakes, pizza and hotdogs. We had a wonderful time and the kids even won a few prizes. Coney Island is very accessible via the subway which only costs $2.75 per ride.

Caught the subway train out to Coney Island and enjoyed a walk along the boardwalk. Also had a yummy breakfast at a diner which was fantastic. Lovely place to visit.
