NEIGHBORHOOD GUIDE

Coney Island

This famous neighborhood is considered Brooklyn’s playground.


Every summer, Coney Island comes to life with amusements, the beach, a packed boardwalk, and of course, Nathan’s hot dogs. This neighborhood is perfect for a day trip -- visitors take the Q train to the end of the line to enjoy Brooklyn’s only amusement park, featuring 50 rides and attractions, including the historic Cyclone roller coaster. Must-dos include stopping for a hot dog at Nathan’s, and pushing through the crowd to take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean. This neighborhood has been a New York attraction since the 1870s, and there are no signs of Coney letting up anytime soon. Photo courtesy of drpavloff via Flickr.
