The weather was great, so I thought a trip to the beach might be fun. Coney Island is at the end of several subway lines, making access from central Manhattan easy in around 40 minutes. Sadly, I went midweek after Labour Day, so the schools had resumed and the resort was largely closed. So unless you visit before Labour Day,... More

Cool place to hang during the day, but as you get farther down the boardwalk away from Nathans it gets seedier looking. Even during the day we eventually turned back. On the beach in the main area was nice. I wouldn't walk around here at night.

It is really true there is very nice beach but we probably picked the wrong date to go cause there were not many people around, everything was closed but from those present most of them were weird, even though it was not night. But beach is excellent.

Took the subway to the end of the line and found Coney Island. Renovated after Hurricane Sandy, the boardwalk and pier were nice and the huge flat beach was clean. Memories of riding the Cyclone as a child and the old Cracker Jack commercial brought a feeling of nostalgia to the visit. Unfortunately the attractions were closed on this day.... More

Luna park was actually closed when we visited but just being there and seeing the rides was awesome. Couldn't believe we were at a beautiful beach in the heart of NYC!

It's great to see that there are sill old school amusement parks out there and Coney island is at the top of the list. It's like stepping back in time when you walk around Coney Island, everything looks so cool and vintage and it's just a all around great place to spend the day or evening when the weathers nice.

You must go to Coney Island if you're visiting New York City. It's just one of those fun experiences you can't get anywhere else that is uniquely NY. Have a Nathan's hot dog! There's a beautiful carousel way at the end and of course, the rides are fun. There is a small "museum" that highlights some of the history and... More
