The Coney Island Beach is an oceanside neighborhood located at the famous Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. It is known for its high population of Russian speaking immigrants and as a summer destination for New York City residents due to its beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and its proximity to the Coney Island amusement park. With nearly 3 miles of sandy beaches, Coney Island’s sunny skies and rolling waves make for the perfect getaway. With courts for beach volleyball, handball, and basketball as well as playgrounds and amusement rides, the beach and boardwalk can provide hours of entertainment. The neighborhood is directly served by a subway station. There is a beach access with a large parking lot at the end of West 19th Street that leads right to the famous boardwalk lining the beach. There is a long fishing pier located here that is a popular spot for fishermen. Food and drink concessions as well as numerous restaurants and shops line the beachside area. The New York Aquarium is a great place to visit during the off-season.
