"Brooklyn Beach Resort"
Brooklyn's Coney Island became one of the city's leisure hotspots in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, following the introduction of the Coney Island & Brooklyn Railroad streetcar line. Since then, the area has been swamped by resorts and attractions. Following the decline of World War II and the years of neglect the park endured after, the area has burst back into life and is home to Luna Park, the Aquarium and of course, the beach. A three-mile-long boardwalk runs the length of Coney Island into Brighton Beach. There is sometimes a circus, but always something strange to see. Also, don't let the non-holiday cooler months deter you from visiting; it is much less crowded, and the stores remain open.

Luna Park first opened in 1903 but was shut down because of an unfortunate fire. It later opened its doors the second time in the year 2010, occupying the same place where once the iconic Astroland Amusement park stood. The park is known for its iconic ride, "A Trip To The Moon" which is also an inspiration to the park's name as Luna is Latin for Moon. Some of the popular rides today, at the Luna Park are the Steeplechase, Thunderbolt, Boardwalk Flight, Sling Shot and the Soarin Eagle, all of these are high on adrenaline and surely not for the faint hearted. The park also has some moderate rides like Circus Coaster, Coney Island Sound, Lynn’s Trapeze and Watermania for those who aren't much of dare devils. The park does not charge an entry fee but has deals on cards and wristbands. Check website for additional information.

Don't leave Coney Island without visiting the Coney Island Circus Sideshow. This ten-in-one circus sideshow is the last one of its kind in the country. Established in 1985 with the goal of keeping the American sideshow alive, you'll be thrilled (or repulsed) by fire eaters, sword swallowers, snake charmers, and contortionists. Witness unnatural and bizarre acts performed by freaks like hammering nails into their noses, eating bed of nail sandwiches and walking on glass! The 45-minute show runs continuously. There's a Freak bar and a small gift shop in the lobby. The Coney Island Circus Sideshow is also home to the world famous Sideshow School.

Located within the fun promising Coney Island in Brooklyn, this now defunct amusement park ride was built in 1939. It was later moved to the Steeplechase Park amusement park where it ceased operation owing to the closure of the park. Though, the Parachute Jump is defunct, it has appeared in many movies.

Brighton Beach is less popular for sunbathers than the nearby Coney Island, although it is just a short eastward stroll away along the boardwalk. The neighborhood of the same name is traditionally home to a large population of Russian Jewish immigrants, making it a great destination to try traditional Russian foods. On this casual beach and on Coney Island as well, you do not need to be tanned and fit to feel at ease in a bathing suit.
