Scenes of Coney Island

A summer holiday destination since the late 1800s, Coney Island is a blend of history, kitsch and carnival. On the south shore of Brooklyn, it’s an easy subway ride from Manhattan to Coney Island’s beach and boardwalk that is sun-lit all day long. In addition to the beach, there are amusement park rides, games and food, Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball, circus sideshows and acts, concerts and more.

If you’re feeling energetic, you may want to head towards Brighton Beach. About a mile east of the main Coney Island attractions, Brighton Beach is a neighborhood community known as Little Odessa and has been settled by East Europeans since the 1950s. The Ukrainian/Russian/Jewish population serves up some of the most authentic cuisine this side of the Atlantic. Until your own Coney Island trip, enjoy the pictures below.
