Coney Island is a peninsula and beach on the Atlantic Ocean in southern Brooklyn, New York City, USA. The site was formerly an outer barrier island, but became partially connected to the mainland by land fill. Coney Island is possibly best known as the site of amusement parks and a major resort. The attractions reached their peak during the first half of the 20th century, declining in popularity after World War II and years of neglect.
