Grab a seat on our beach-bound Nostalgia Ride heading to Coney Island this July! At 10:00am, board our 1910s BMT B-Type Standards and 1930s IND R1-9 cars for a two-hour jaunt to Coney Island from 96th Street/2nd Avenue via the Q line. Once we arrive at Stillwell Avenue, brave the rides at Luna Park, check out the action on the legendary Boardwalk, or try 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, now on display at the Coney Island Museum. Spend the evening in Coney Island and make your own way back home, or join the Transit Museum for a return trip to Manhattan at 4:00 pm. Ride our vintage train back to Manhattan at approximately 4:00PM, or stay late to take in the sunset on the beach before making your way home on your own.
