Hi there! Summer is already well under way in New York, and it’s the perfect opportunity to talk to you about another beach you can reach from Manhattan by the subway! I told you about Rockaway a few weeks ago, a calm beach a little further away. This time I’m taking you to one of the New York movies’ cliché places, in an American fair decor! Coney Island of course!
Truth is, the beach is not the best. Sorry if I’m killing the dreamy picture here but it’s a bit dirty. That’s why I won’t advise you to go there to relax, but rather to enjoy its atmosphere, the rides, and stroll along the dike.
You can reach Coney Island via lines D, N, F and Q. It takes about 1:45 to travel there (from the Upper West Side).
In the next article about New York, we’ll visit another beach … in the Hamptons !!!
So what do you think about Coney Island ?
