Coney Island Boardwalk

 - Night - Brooklyn

The One and Only Coney.
America's Original Beach Playground:

Coney Island, Brooklyn, USA

The Riegelmann Boardwalk, named for Edward J. Riegelmann but known by many as simply as the Coney Island Boardwalk, is located along the southern shore of the Coney Island peninsula adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean.

The boardwalk, built in 1923, stretches for 2.51 miles from West 37th Street at the border of Coney Island and Sea Gate to Brighton 14th Street in Brighton Beach.

Many of its most famous amusement parks no longer exist, but the boardwalk still hosts the Coney Island Cyclone roller coaster and the Wonder Wheel Ferris wheel, as well as the New York Aquarium. The more recent MCU Park is home of the minor-league Brooklyn Cyclones baseball team.

The Riegelmann Boardwalk has a steel and concrete foundation supporting wood planking for the walkway. Restroom facilities, benches and waterfountains are located along its length. As of October 2010, the city has been renovating the boardwalk: parts will receive new wood planking over concrete supports, and parts will be replaced with concrete entirely, for lower maintenance cost.

Take a break from the concrete jungle at this much improved beach and interesting boardwalk. Get a Nathan's Hot Dog, Shoot the Freak, down a beer or just walk. It's our favorite nearby escape.

A must for all. Steeped in history; the rides were once wooden, including a big slide that resulted in splinters. Take the $2 train ride on the MTA and make a fun day of it. Yes, have a Nathan's too!

"Coney Island," Chester sighs. "Have some dogs at Nathan's, ride that Cyclone or whatever it's called, pop a few shots and win your girl a prize..." — Ann Beattie, The New Yorker Stories

В октябре здесь гиперскучно и страшновато, как будто вот-вот бросят нейтронную бомбу — или уже бросили.

No better introduction to winter than swimming with the Polar Bears on New Years Day on Coney Island Beach. 1pm. Bring a towel.

The nearby Shore Theatre opened as the Loew’s Coney Island Theatre on June 17, 1925 and closed in 1973, after decades of showing motion pictures, burlesque, adult films and vaudeville performances.

The infamous lost city of Beer Island can still be seen in the mist after some Tuesday Cyclones home games.

Go past the pier (your right when facing the ocean) for cleaner sand and a younger crowd.

Coney needs more bike lock ups. Especially closer to the beach. What gives?

this place has weird hours and days of operation, check first if you plan on riding rides...

Nothing beats a polar bear night swim
May 4, 2012
It’s a kitsch classic. We love the endearingly down-at-the heel look and vintage attractions—there’s nothing like riding the Cyclone, a rickety wooden coaster that’s been around forever!

The B&B Carousell is the sole surviving carousel in Coney Island from Brooklyn's Golden Age. Featuring 50 hand-carved horses and two chariots, it operated on Surf Avenue until 2005.

Coney Island is looking better. It has new rides at Luna Park & cheap baseball games at the home of the Cyclones. The beach/ boardwalk are still a work in progress but I love the Aquarium.

Although it might seem like this place has seen its best years, its still a great spot! Especially in summer season the place literally lights up: you can see brilliant fireworks here on Friday night!

Hot dogs and pizza are the specialties here
