New York City
As every New Yorker knows, Coney Island is a must Summer spot in New York City. As you can see in this photo from 1950, that was the case also back in the fifties.
The beach is absolutely packed, and you can see the famous parachute ride in the background on the boardwalk. Although it’s the most popular one, it’s a common mistake to think that Coney Island is the only beach in New York City.
