NYCE at Coney Island

 

Coney Island, a peninsula located in the Lower Bay of Brooklyn, has undergone many transformations since the first hotel opened in 1829, the switchback railway, the first roller coaster in America, welcomed crowds in 1884, and the first hotdog was invented and sold there by Charles Feltman in 1867. Today Coney Island boasts of residences rather than hotels, the switchback railway has been replaced by the Cyclone, and the hotdogs are not Feltman’s but Nathan’s. This golden Tuesday was the perfect day for students to take the subway to enjoy Coney Island’s rides, games, and boardwalk, just as New Yorkers have been doing since before the turn of the century.
