BOARDWALK & BEACH
Stepping onto the lively boardwalk, you will be immediately greeted by the sky-high rides and the endless views of the Atlantic Ocean. Originally opened on May 15, 1923, the boardwalk recently, in 2018 on its 95th anniversary, was officially named a New York City landmark. One of the best-known waterfront promenades in the world, the boardwalk is home to a variety of events, such as the annual Sand Sculpting Competition, Flicks on the Beach, weekly Friday Night Fireworks shows, and more. Walk along and explore the many attractions and iconic food vendors Coney Island has to offer.

Originally built in 1904, Steeplechair Pier is a 1,040-foot (320 m) pier located at the intersection of the boardwalk at West 17th Street is the only remaining pier on Coney Island's beach. Several improvements have been made through the years due to damage from hurricanes, fires, and boat accidents. The most serious incident was a fire in 1957 that destroyed the pier; and a larger replacement opened the next year, with a T-shaped extension at the end. The pier was rebuilt most recently in 2013 after it was damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
