Coney Island

Coney Island—New York City’s legendary amusement district—is not a theme park. The home of the Cyclone roller coaster, the Wonder Wheel, the original Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and the Boardwalk is something different: a seaside playground that’s also a real-life NYC neighborhood. Its many attractions have made it a warm-weather favorite for all, featuring see-it-to-believe-it sideshows, beachfront stands selling funnel cake, one of the City’s oldest and best pizzerias and the Brooklyn Cyclones baseball team. On a bright summer day, no place feels more electric.
