The Iconic Coney Island Boardwalk was the Standard in Boardwalks and was copied everywhere! it was the most popular Area in the East Coast in the late 1800's to early 1900's and that is why coney island has one of the largest subway stations in the world. The mile long boardwalk host a humber of amusement rides and attractios like the luna park, brooklyn cyclones, Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park and more. But the advent of cheap travel due to the automobile has reduced this icon to a mere shell of itself. The attractions reached their peak during the first half of the 20th century, declining in popularity after World War II and years of neglect. After World War II, contraction began seriously from a number of pressures. Air conditioning in movie theaters and then in homes, along with the advent of automobiles which provided access to the less crowded and more appealing Long Island state parks, lessened the attractions of Coney's beaches.
