Coney Island is possibly best known as the site of amusement parks and a major resort that reached their peak during the first half of the 20th century. It declined in popularity after World War II and endured years of neglect. In recent years, the area has seen the opening of MCU Park and has become home to the minor league baseball team the Brooklyn Cyclones.

Fun time for the familyFlag review
Our first experience at Coney Island was a fun trip. We took a one hour train from mid-Manhattan to Coney Island. They have a nice aquarium that includes a sea lion show. The best place was definitely Nathan's hot dogs. It is must lunch time destination, but can be very crowded. the beach had a nice boardwalk and the kids enjoyed searching for shells. The rides and games were a bit pricey and we avoided that. Overall, an enjoyable day.

Great to experience off season!
We went with a large group of family and friends- some had young children. Coney Island offers something for everyone in terms of the rides and attractions. So between the kiddie rides, and the adult ''screamer'' rides, everyone found something fun to do. And if you are not much of an amusement park ''...
Wish I had visited sooner!
Headed from Manhattan to Coney Island on the subway - easy trip, no transfers, took about an hour and fekt safe all the way there and back. Stopped at Nathan's Famous for hot dogs and created some real culinary masterpieces. They were great - reason enough to make the trip! Then headed up to the boardwalk. I grew up going to the Boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland and I felt like I was right at home. Coney Island's boards are a bit wider, but the place had the same family oriented feel. Four of us - senior citizens all - went through the fun house, raced with waterguns to win prizes, and ate funnel cakes. We acted like kids and then visited the ''Zoltar'' fortune teller, like Tom Hanks in Big, hoping to recapt...
