Coney Island is a great place to walk on the boardwalk or in the sand. The amusement area has many new rides & Nathan's hot dogs & fries are a must when you come to visit. I remember riding the cyclone, as a teenager, & still love to watch all the people screaming as they take that first drop. The... More

An hour visit to Coney Island is all you need to feel like you are in a Woody Allen movie. From the tiny houses by the shore, to the attractions in the park.

Not ideal visiting CI in March, but I wasn’t sure if I’d get an opportunity again in the near future. Unfortunately the day we went is was extremely windy, and cool. We did a quick walk on the boardwalk, but the conditions made it too unpleasant. It was nice to see the famous boardwalk. Also went to Nathan’s, the Sideshows... More

A lovely day out if the weather is nice. Feels like a throwback to 1950's seaside America with the ferris wheel, beach bars and prom. The sweet shop and Nathan's are worth a visit too!

Coney Island is pricey. As you'd expect for any midway type place. But the rides are awesome. There is a beach right there!! Seriously. A beach day on your NYC vacation is too cool. I never associate sun and sand with the hustle and bustle of NYC but wow, is this place cool. Nathans Original hot dogs are a must... More

The very first place we stopped by was Nathan's. My husband ordered hotdogs and I ordered the frog legs. I was not sure what to expect but the frog legs were not bad. They were too bland for my taste. My husband was rather disappointed with his hotdogs. The fries were okay. We skipped the rides and walked around but... More

My sister, daughter & I visited coney island this past week. We were so excited, but was disappointed when we finally got there. We didn't know that there only open the weekend until after memorial day they will be open. There are a few shops, restaurants, but nothing spectacular. The area is dirty, and just gloomy. Wasn't impressed and would... More

Like an old fashioned Margate meets modern technology. Great rides and great fun along with expected boardwalk fast food. A perfect day out. Kids say it was the highlight of their week. Even the train ride there was exciting!

This was mostly closed when we went there but there was a shop and diner open which were great. A nice walk down the promenade and pier on a cold but sunny day. Bet its really busy in a summer.
