I did a race this past weekend that ended at Coney Island in Brooklyn. It was a fun place to spend some time! The Coney Island beach was looking rather uncrowded since it is early in the season. The fate of the amusement park at Coney Island seems to be in limbo as developers decide what to do with it. I'll be sorry to see it change much. But the beach is still a nice place to catch some sun and spend some time near the water.
