About Coney Island (text from around 1923)
Coney Island is the playground of New York City, and is one of the most popular resorts in the United States. It is in the borough of Brooklyn, and is about five miles in length and from half to three-quarters of a mile in width.
It is very easily reached by fast subway express trains, trolley, also by boat and buses, which make very interesting trips.
The new boardwalk is wide enough to accommodate the multitude of people that flock there to enjoy the cool breeze.
Coney Island has many places of amusement. Steeplechase and Luna Park are the most important, which attract hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. The most daring feats of skill, the most magnificent spectacles, the most novel and unique rides are procured by these famous parks at great expense.
No one who is within striking distance of New York City fails to go to Coney Island to enjoy a walk on the new wide boardwalk or take a dip in the surf or take in one of the many amusements.
