Came on a very cold day - 25 degrees - and bundled up. It was cold but cool to see Coney in the winter months. Not many folks... No rides or sideshows open, but fun to walk around and see the rides and enjoy the silence!

I had a spectacular time at Coney Island. I really enjoyed it. Coney Island is a place where you can go and have fun but at the same time relax. There are rides, sights and the beach to enjoy.

If you're looking for sun, fun, and great comfort food, this is the place for you! And when you are all tuckered out from all the rides and attractions you can lay on the beach and relax or strole through the amazing aquarium. Coney island is one of the greatest attractions in Brooklyn. A must see! Enjoy!

The beach is beautiful, and thanks to the outstanding work done by the Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), the water is clean and a pleasure to swim in. If you love long ambles along the water, this is the place for you - you can literally walk for hours from the west end of Sea Gate to the eastern tip... More

Area is still dingy. A lot of empty lots. It needs a lot of money to clean it up to make it a world class destination. Very bad neighborhoods closs by.

A beautiful and nice place for a walk in addition to amusement parks with roller coasters and ferris wheel rides (for kids and grown as well). A little bit far from Manhattan but easily reached by subway.

If you want what's left of the real NYC, go to Coney Island, especially during special events like the Mermaid Festival. The second hand (read garbage) shops are worth a rummage, and there's always the wonderful Nathan's French Fries, but it's most interesting to look at all levels of humanity. It's eye-opening. The aquarium needs work, but they do as... More
