Wander the boardwalk, lounge on the beach, or grab a bite to eat at a waterside cafe when you visit Coney Island. This arts organization on a Brooklyn peninsula hosts museums, arcades, and sideshow-type establishments. Hop on an amusement park ride, like a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, or carousel for a classic regional experience. This conglomeration of beachfront attractions retains its air of nostalgia thanks to the remnants of the tourist industry that powered its development.

Coney Island reviews
Everything is closed in the mornings as late as 10am. This would probably be more fun in the summer, and I would suggest waiting until then to visit.

The boardwalk is great. I wish there was some shade on the boardwalk but it was a nice walk. The beach is quite dirty but good if you cannot go to any other beach outside of NYC.
I had quite a nice time here in Coney Island Beach/Boardwalk. Lots to do here. Beach is alright. Water is a bit dirty. Lots to do on the boardwalk. Amusement park with rides and games. Golf course, go cart racing, bumper cars, games, huge roller coasters and lots of food!! There’s an area where lots of people were fishing too. Fun for adults and fun for kids. Very close by to the train.
