Home to famous rides like the Cyclone Roller Coaster, the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump, this historic seaside section of Broooklyn is about an hour by train from Manhattan and still boasts a lively boardwalk, beach, and the best hot dogs around.

Stopped by for lunch after church. Train station is close and the attractions are nice. Fun little place to take the family. Expensive food but hey you get a hot dog at the original Nathan's. Beach looked nice but too cold for us.

Open everyday during the summer months, but come Sept. you need to check their hours. Almost had a Chevy Chase Vacation due to their Fall hours. Not much to do in this area after summer is over.

Check their schedule – all rides were closed when we visited, but there were still lots of shops and cafes open. You have to try a famous Nathan’s hot dog or corn dog, have an ice-cold beer at Paul’s Daughter, and take a walk on...More

It’s about one hour by train from Manhattan but it’s worth it. You sure have to visit it to go for a walk at the beach and visit the Luna park!!
