Coney Island has been a destination for almost as long as New York. The place is full of pushy locals, Russian immigrants, tatted sailors, horrified vegans, and deeply confused tourists. And its that strange mix of people that gives Luna Park such an amazing atmosphere. The amusement park (which originally opened in 1903 and reopened in 2010) features the Brooklyn Flyer, The Tickler, and a host of other memorable rides, but no one should come here for the thrills. The best activity at Luna Park is people watching. It isn't even close.
