Beach Bound: Coney Island

10:00 am


Join us on our ever-popular, boardwalk-bound Coney Island Nostalgia Ride! Leaving from 96th Street-Second Avenue Station in Manhattan, we’ll take our vintage 1930s R1-9 train cars and 1910s BMT B-Type "Standard" cars for a two-hour jaunt to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue station. Once we arrive at our seaside destination, you can brave the rides at Luna Park, check out the action on the legendary boardwalk, or nosh on one of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs. You can also visit the Transit Museum's special exhibit Five Cents to Dreamland: A Trip to Coney Island on display at the Coney Island Museum or enjoy additional rides before heading out. Stay at the beach and make your own way home or join the Transit Museum for a return trip departing at 4:00 pm from Coney Island-Stilwell Avenue and traveling via the Q, D, and A lines to 175th Street in Manhattan where the trip will end.
