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.

It's definitely nostalgic but also kinda creepy to me. I guess I watched too many carnival horror movies. The beach was so packed that our neighbor's foot...
the spirit never dies. despite the best efforts of our city's "leaders" in their quest to turn New York City into Flyover Country Suburbia, they just can't quite crush you, Coney. oh, they can shut down the bars/restaurants. they'll put up some mega-shopping centers in their place... but Coney, you refuse to die. multiple random festivals on one day (Caribbean food/music festival on one side-street, an ambient/lounge music dance party on a part of the boardwalk, a bunch of random local rock bands playing short sets further down the boardwalk). this ain't no fancy-shmancy beach with jacked-up "beach admission rates". this is the everyman's beach. every flavor of New York City's working and middle class is rep...
