Join us on our ever-popular, boardwalk-bound Coney Island Nostalgia Ride! Leaving from 96th Street-Second Avenue Station in Manhattan, we’ll take our 1930s R 1-9 vintage train cars for a two-hour jaunt to Coney Island. Once we arrive at our seaside destination, you can brave the rides at Luna Park, check out the action on the legendary boardwalk, or nosh on one of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs. Visit the Transit Museum's special exhibit Five Cents to Dreamland: A Trip to Coney Island on display at the Coney Island Museum or enjoy an additional ride before heading out. Stay at the beach and make your own way home or join the Transit Museum for a return trip leaving Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue at 4pm and traveling to 96th Street-Second Avenue where the trip will end.
