Coney Island is a neighborhood & amusement area in Brooklyn. Beginning around the 1830’s it started to become a vacation destination. By 1880 it had become the nation’s largest amusement area. Although it did have it’s seedy elements Coney Island continued to be a popular New Yorker’s resort spot along with neighboring Brighton Beach & Manhattan Beach.
The attractions included three amusement parks, a ferris wheel, roller coaster, carousel, a public beach, boardwalk, vendors & all the sort of stuff you’d see at any county fair.
It was a bustling place in it’s hey day. But by the end of WWII attendance largely declined for various reasons. Part of the area was destroyed by fire. Coney Island eventually became rundown & neglected.
Some bit of activity continued over the years. But for the most part over the next 60 years development of the area remained in limbo. Contention & litigation continued for years over Coney Island land use. City, private developers & other parties went back and forth for years with contending plans. Land ownership changed hands many times. Most of the original structures were demolished. Proposals were made for everything from public housing projects to condos, resorts, casinos, sports complexes, malls & amusement parks.
Most of the big plans fell through. But Coney Island has been cleaned up and remains an amusement district with just a few hotels in the area. Luna Park, one of the original amusement parks, has been restored. A new Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park has been added. Three of the iconic rides are also restored & designated as NYC historical landmarks (The Wonder Wheel Ferris Wheel of 1920, the Cyclone Roller Coaster of 1927 & the parachute jump of 1937).
Other additions include the New York Aquarium, the Ford Amphitheatre & the MCU Park baseball stadium. Most impressive is the 2.6 mile long extra wide boardwalk stretching along the beachfront.
The parks, aquarium & businesses all took a big hit by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Most everything is back up & running. The New York Aquarium has reopened during summer of 2018.
The beach, boardwalk & aquarium are open year round while Luna Park is seasonal. It’s opened every weekend Easter through Halloween & all week Memorial Day to Labor Day. Of course our flooring services in Coney Island are open all week, all year round.

Right next to Coney Island on the far West side is the private gated community of Sea Gate. It’s composed of 832 single family residences of various style. It also took a heavy toll from Hurricane Sandy. Many residences were destroyed. The rebuilding of the community is reported to be very slow going after 5 years. A good number of homes remain abandoned. Apparently some residents have chosen to relocate not wanting to risk possibility of another flood. But the houses that are being rebuilt are being made back better & stronger. And it’s our pleasure to offer flooring installation & services in Sea Gate.
