Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Coney Island is a neighborhood in Brooklyn. In fact it's probably the most talked about neighborhood in the borough. There's KeySpan Park for the Cyclones, the amusement park, the BMT Subway station, the Hot Dog store Nathan's and the two and a half mile boardwalk (The Edward J Riegelmann boardwalk to be exact) that serves Manhattan Beach, Brighton Beach, and Coney Island, and ending at Sea Gate (east-to-west)

In case you're curious to see what points of interest look like, here they are.

Let me start with the Riegelmann boardwalk itself.

The Famous roller coaster, the Cyclone

The Wonder Wheel and the amusement park

The Parachute Jump Tower: back in the day a parachute jump was an actual ride.

KeySpan Park, home for the Cyclones. I believe these side walls were more interesting though.

Nathan's hot Dog Stand.

Looking along Stillwell Avenue

The Subway Station, home for the D F N and Q lines

That's it for now, thanks for reading.
