The Basics

Wading into the Atlantic Ocean at Coney Island is a quintessential New York experience. Visitors can book a day pass for Luna Park amusement park and try out retro rides, such as the antique B&B Carousell and the Cyclone, a wooden roller coaster that dates back to 1927, as well as playing classic arcade games like Whac-a-Mole.

Travelers can explore Coney Island on guided sightseeing and pizza-themed tours of Brooklyn, as well as on multiborough tours that hop between neighborhoods in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn. Coney Island can also be seen from the water during Jet Ski tours and from the air during helicopter tours over NYC.

New York Helicopter Tour: Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island
We arrived 30 minutes early before our reservation time which is a must for check in, waiver forms and safety protocols. The staff was friendly and professional. The ride was very smooth and great pilot as he gave us history about the boroughs.

The tour was worth the money! Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the subject matter & had a great sense of humor. The bus was clean & had built in cell phone chargers! One will certainly need that due to the amount of pictures that will be taken! A must do for anyone that’s interested in the other boroughs besides MANHATTAN!!!!

Our excellent guide Antonio gave us a little flavor and history of The Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn. Especially fun was the time strolling on Coney Island. I feel that I now have a much broader and deeper understanding of ALL of New York.

I would have liked more time in another Burroughs of NY instead of spending an hour at Coney Island. Overall, good trip with good information. Made me more knowledgeable of NY as a whole.
