Coney Island Boardwalk
In 1920 the subway was extended to Coney Island, making the trip even faster and cheaper than before. Up to one million visitors a day would come to enjoy the beaches and the amusement parks with higher and faster rides. The subway, like many of the rides in the amusement parks and the famous hot dogs at Nathan’s, cost five cents, a fact that contributed to the description of Coney as the Nickel Empire.
