Coney Island was on the top of our list of must do activities in NYC during our three days there, we didn’t want to go for the adventure or rides but instead we wanted to be immersed in all the hype that is Coney Island. We grabbed the Subway from Upper Manhattan and rode it all the way down into Brooklyn where Coney Island perches.
‘About 50 minutes by subway from Midtown the wide sandy beach of Coney Island has retained its nostalgic, kitschy and slightly sleazy charms.’ – Eastern USA Lonely Planet

3. Seeing men playing chess in the park, we walked so far to get to experience that moment and nearly missed it completely
1. Walking the wrong way for far to long
