12 CONEY IS­LAND

Attitude - - Places -

Once the play­ground of the United States, par­tic­u­larly for an in­flux of Bri­tish, Ir­ish and Ital­ian im­mi­grants, Coney Is­land is still home to a vi­brant im­mi­grant com­mu­nity and kitschy Amer­i­cana. Grab a leg­endary Nathan’s Fa­mous Hot Dog, stroll on the board­walk, and then take a ride on one of the coun­try’s old­est wooden roller­coast­ers, The Cy­clone, at Luna Park, or go for a ro­man­tic spin on the Won­der Wheel at Deno’s Amuse­ment Park. At night, grab a bite to eat at one of the many Rus­sian restau­rants.
