Coney Island offers an ideal summer respite from the hectic and steamy city.  With nearly 3 miles of sandy beaches, Coney Island’s sunny skies and rolling waves make for the perfect getaway.  If being active at the beach is more your idea of fun than just catching some rays, Coney Island also offers exciting recreation opportunities.  With courts for beach volleyball, handball, and basketball as well as playgrounds and amusement rides, the beach and boardwalk can provide hours of entertainment.

Sheepshead Bay is a bay separating the mainland of Brooklyn, New York City, from the eastern portion of Coney Island. The mouth of the bay is about 1.0 mile (1.6 km) southwest of Marine Park, Brooklyn.

Coney Island is well known as the site of amusement parks and a seaside resort. In recent years, the area has seen the opening of MCU Park stadium which has become home to the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team, as well as the New York Cosmos professional soccer club. In addition, Coney Island has opened a new amusement park among several adjacent ones.
