Opening weekend at Coney Island 2013

As we reported last week, many of Coney Island's main attractions (think Luna Park and Deno's Wonder Wheel) opened during the weekend of March 23 for the first time since Hurricane Sandy. Families headed back to the popular Brooklyn beach to enjoy rides, games and, even, a Nathan's hot dog (the location on Surf Avenue won't open until Memorial Day, but the spot on W 12th St at Boardwalk West is open for business). Scroll through our photos and stay tuned to our site for updates on Coney Island throughout the summer. We're very excited for the renovation and opening of the B&B Carousell—the historic merry-go-round will be housed in a pavillion in the center of Steeplechase Plaza, a two-acre public space.
