The appeal of Coney Island is that you can picture it in its heyday, with men in striped bathing suits and handlebar mustaches sitting on the beach, and women wearing pearls on ferris wheels. Now, it's more of a rundown, half-abandoned area run by carnies in trailers. But there's something about riding an octogenarian roller coaster or walking into a tent filled with "live freak animals" that still holds some magic for me. Brooklyn is currently trying to clean up this area and build a whole new theme park, so visit it now while it still has some shreds of old-school charm remaining.
