Address Coney Island Boardwalk Garden Stillwell Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11214, USA

Now back in favor with New Yorkers and tourists, Coney Island has had a complicated history.

An iconic Brooklyn amusement park, Coney Island became a fashionable place as early as 1860. Hotels, amusement rides and horse racing tracks flourished at the pace of a boom that was greatly helped by the installation, at the beginning of the 20th century, of an electrified railroad line connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan. The first carousel was built in 1876, followed in 1916 by the opening of the iconic Nathan’s Famous hot dog restaurant. In 1920, it was The Wonder Wheel, the Ferris wheel that would come to symbolize the place worldwide, that New Yorkers welcomed with open arms. Several sensational rides entered the breach, taking advantage of the affluence. But the war dealt a fatal blow to the park, and the bankruptcies quickly followed. Finally, it was during the 1960s that the attractions found favor with visitors from Manhattan and tourists.
