Owner description: Home to famous rides like the Cyclone Roller Coaster, the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump, this historic seaside section of Broooklyn is about an hour by train from Manhattan and still boasts a lively boardwalk, beach, and the best hot dogs around.

The best $11 spent for two people yes its 45 minutes from Central Manhattan but its well worth it wasn't over busy either and loads of the shops have reopened on the board walk after Sandy we had Anne's Pretzels at one ( an almond one and a Cinnamon one) warm and taste too shops have some interesting Coney island gifts too

We had a late flight on Sunday on the 4th of July weekend so decided to go check out Coney Island , hey its free, we took the Subway there took us about 45 minutes , but we had nothing else planned and I wanted a Nathans Hot dog before I left. It was clean the beach looked nice , the restrooms left a bit to be desired but it was a busy hot day. Lots to do and see . Lots of shady places to sit and people watch which is what we really did other than shop a few stores. Glad we went and checked it , looked like fun place if you had kids.

When we went to Coney Island we combined it with Brighton Town and Brighton Beach. It was during the week, not too hot and quite windy. I can imagine that on a hot and sunny summer weekend this place must be crowded, which may lead that it then looks less relaxing and quiet as it did the day we've been there.
The beach is large, clean and lasts as far as the eyes can reach.
The amusement park with wonder wheel, roller-coaster and suchlike is nice to look at it once, but nothing special - it just belongs to Coney Island.
You are quite restricted regarding consuming food and drinks. If you buy something at one of the restaurants/food stalls you are directed where you have to stay or sit and consume - you can't walk around or sit on the beach with it. I'm not sure whether this is just the case for alcoholic beverages like beer or if it also applies for other drinks. The whole area is well supervised by police patrol walking around or driving on small vehicles as well as beach supervision/rescue.
Coney Island is well worth a visit. Just make sure you don't go there if crowds are predictable (weekends, hot weather) or you don't get the impression of a huge quiet relaxing area outside of busy Manhattan.

Old attractions, bad food, not a single bar or place wih nice terrace.

Only interesting when you want to see sand and water. Must be one of the least attractive beaches in the world
