Take a historic 1930s subway to Coney Island. The popular, boardwalk-bound Coney Island Nostalgia Train Ride returns on Saturday, July 12, 2014. You’ll be on one of the vintage R1/9 cars of the Independent Subway System, with rattan seats, ceiling fans, and windows that open to catch the breeze.
It’s a two-hour jaunt above and below ground to visit Coney Island’s beach-side amusement park. That would include taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean, riding the legendary wooden roller coaster Cyclone, eating Nathan’s hot dogs, and visiting the Coney Island Aquarium, which has re-opened after being pretty much wrecked by Superstorm Sandy. Or, you could just stay on the train for for additional rides.
This isn’t your ordinary $2.50 subway ride. Pricing is $50 for adults and $25 for children, through the NYC Transit Museum, operated by the MTA. After all, these vintage trains need special care, and that costs money. Reserve a spot here before all the seats are gone.
